A Fruitcake to Love

People can be divided into those who love Fruitcake and those who hate Fruitcake.  It is very polarizing and there is little middle ground!  I was in the latter group until one Christmas season I was reading my December issue of BonAppetit and saw a recipe for, “A Fruitcake to Love.” A light fruitcake that had olives in it!  I present this recipe mainly for the haters in the hopes that you will stick your toe over the line and give it a try.
