Subject: Graham cracker fruit cake
I haven't contacted you in a long time but I am once again looking for a recipe.
I was looking for a brown swagger recipe before and I sent you a fruit cake recipe
that I had been looking for that I found. I'm looking for another fruit cake recipe
that my mom used to make. It is made with graham crackers, orange juice, marshmallows,
and I'm not sure what else. Is there a chance you can help me with this recipe?
Thank you so much for all your help in the past and for your help now.
Wishing you the best this beautiful season,
Iím finding a couple of dozen recipes with those ingredients. They are all no-bake and
are similar except for a few variations in the ingredients. The below recipe is representative.
No Bake Fruit Cake
3/4 c. Pet milk
24 lg. marshmallows, finely cut or 3 c. of tiny size
1/3 c. orange juice
6 c. graham cracker crumbs (6 doz. sq.crackers)
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cloves
1 1/2 c. seedless raisins
3/4 c. finely chopped dates
1 c. broken walnuts
1 1/4 c. candied fruit or 3/4 c. candied cherries or pineapple
Mix in the milk and marshmallow mixture with a spoon then with hands until crumbs are moistened.
Press firmly into pan. Top with fruit, nuts, cover tightly and chill 2 days before slicing.
Keep in refrigerator. Makes 3 1/2 pounds.

Many years ago a co worker would bring his favorite fruit cake to our Christmas dinners and I
lost the recipe and the fellow passed away years ago , It contained candied cherries, pineapple,
dates, coconut nuts marshmallow melted and buttered crackers there might have been a couple more
ingredients but this is all I can remember, no baking just mix and put in the freezer until ready
to eat it did not contain any citrus.
What kind of crackers? Graham or saltines? Were they crumbs or used whole?

They were like ritz crackers and they were crumbled and mixed in with the fruit and the rest
of the ingredients.
Ritz Cracker Fruit Cake
1 lb. Ritz crackers, crumbled
1 lb. candied pineapple
1 lb. candied cherries
1 lb. marshmallows
1 box seedless raisins
4 c. chopped pecans
1 c. walnuts
1 tall can Pet milk
7 oz. flaked coconut
Cook marshmallows and milk until melted. Pour over other ingredients that you have mixed together
in a very large mixing bowl. Mix all together and mash down in an oblong pan, 13x9x3 inch lined
with waxed paper or into paper-lined loaf pans. Refrigerate one week. Then it can be frozen in slices.
Thatís it thank you very much.
