Ah, fruitcake. The traditional ambrosia of the season. It is, of course, fruit and cake, blended into a dense mass of colors, flavors and textures to delight all five senses...
...or so we've been told. We have yet to find anyone who has actually eaten fruitcake. Nevertheless, with your help, we at CNN Interactive salute the misunderstood fruitcake, the most traditional of holiday treats and time-honored target of holiday jokes. Dig in!
If you love fruitcake or just want to torture your friends and family with it, then please submit your fruitcake recipes below. Please make sure that you don't include too many toxic main ingredients. Remember, if we can hammer a roofing nail into a brick with it, it's a normal recipe.
To submit recipes, uses for fruitcake, fruitcake-inspired haikus, or other submissions, please visit our Feedback page.
Suggested fruitcake uses
Not edible, yet,
Fruit from the past,
I see bright red, glowing green,
It will outlive cockroaches.
