Living in the South, almost every evening meal is topped off by some kind of dessert.  If you had cake, it's was



usually served with homemade pickles in a fancy little dish.  When we had homecoming at my mom's church,



there were always a lot of cakes and just as many dishes of pickles, all homemade and sitting next to



the baker's cake.  Christmas meant we would have a fruitcake that my mom had made.  Yes, I said fruitcake,



and it was fabulous!  I have her recipe but I have never been able to duplicate it.  Even my husband said her



fruitcake was the best.  It was made in a large tube pan with a removable bottom and usually weighed close



to 10 pounds.  She used grape juice as the liquid, never liquor or wine.
