I voted I hate fruitcake, which isn't true. I'll eat it, but I'll eat pretty much anything and of the things I eat it is definitely at the bottom if the list.

I panicked and tried to reverse my vote mid-load so I could vote for pumpkin pie, but to no avail. I do live pie.

This is what my grandmother makes, although she's always called it fruitcake.

She also makes kolache cookies. We have a lot of Eastern European recipes, actually.

My family is originally from Germany with roots in Russia...so that is where all this comes from with my family as well

We have a greek influence from one of my grandfathers...lots of good food to be had there too

I like Fruitcake. I've never understood the big deal about it, and why it's so hated, but I suppose how would I if I like it?

I can take it or leave it.

But the same thing goes for pumpkin pie -- mostly leave it.

Nope, not I.

However, growing up, one of my mum's best friend's hubbies was from England, and he would spend months in advance preparing traditional British Christmas pudding for all of our families. Complete with baking coins and other goodies inside, aging it for weeks, and flaming it with soaked brandy.

It was always served with rum butter and was gloriously delicious, and I miss it like CRAZY.

I should make my own.
