Directions

Mix all the candied fruits and pineapple (cut pineapple in small pieces) in a bowl and mix with 1/4 cup Brandy and marinate overnight. 1/2 lb. of mixed nuts - (brazil nuts, pecan, almonds) - mixed with a little bit of flour from the measured cake batter, so the nuts will not stick together. (1 cup) Pour the cake batter over the top of the fruit and nuts and mix them all together and pour in a fruit cake pan. Bake at 275 for 1/2 hour and lower to 250 degrees for 5 to 6 hours.
