Anybody have a recipe for a vegan fruitcake? You know, the egg-laden, heavy with dried and candied fruit, holiday staple? I LOVE fruitcake, and I know that eggs are an important part of its flavor and texture. And now that I've gone vegan (20 days! w00t!) I want to find a way to continue to enjoy it.

Not quite what you were asking for I guess but it does have fruit in it.

how does that look?

I've never eated fruitcake but it looks kind of like it, right? It doesn't specify what fruits to use but I usually see the green and red marachino(?) cherries in it.

These look pretty close to the "real" thing.

The third one looks best. I like the amount of fruit and pecans it has in the recipe.

cstadt, that looks pretty close, and pretty damn good in its own right, but I have a feeling that what I'm looking for can't be found. There's a heavy moist quality and a unique flavor to the traditional fruitcake (also present in old-fashioned Apple Cake, and a couple other egg-heavy fruit cake recipes) that I don't thing can be replicated...

Sally, I think we may be on to something here. That first one looked pretty close! The other two recipes didn't have pics, but it looks like the recipes are pretty similar.



Thanks!! now I just gotta go buy a bunch of ingredients!

Good luck! I don't know why anyone would want to make fruit cake, though. (just kidding!)

It was the pouring of the melted apricot jam on top that got me!

This is a recipe I use and love. It doesn't have the weird colored fruit, but it's dense, moist and spicy. It says to make it as cupcakes, but I make it in a loaf pan.



Poor Man's Fruitcake

1 stick of EB

1 C sugar

1 Cup raisins (or 1/2 raisins, 1/2 dried cranberries)

1 cup water

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

1 3/4 cup flour

1 teaspoon bakign soda

1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts



Preheat to 375. In a saucepan, combine margarine, sugar, raisins, water, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Bring to a good boil and then let cool. When cool, stir in flour, soda and nuts. Line cupcake pan with paper liners and fill. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Can also be made in a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake about 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted has only moist crumbs.



Yum.
