Hail, anonymous reader

Yup, I'm back in it. Thanks to anonymous reader X, who recommended Southern Supreme fruitcakes out of North Carolina. I thought I'd ease back into the whole fruitcake thing with a gooey, non-alcoholic, southern style cake. I ordered the 1 pound cake--they say it's their best seller. We'll see. Even anonymous reader X agreed that the best cakes are monastery cakes, but I think I'll do the opposite of what I did last year and lead up to the grand finish of a boozy monastery cake. So come on, gang, there's fruitcake to be eaten!!

I guess April is a good time for some Bible-belt tea-totalling cake!

Southern Supreme is more nutty than gooey. Comes across rather like "wet walnuts" on your chocolate sundae. It was an acquired taste for me. Non-alcoholic or not, I'm addicted. Order a two-pounder next time, and you will be also. "X"

Hi, X, hoped you liked the shout out!! Do you feel there's a difference between the 1 and 2 pound? I've had a similar comment from a Claxton lover.
