I've never made Christmas Cake, but a friend of mine does and this is the recipe she uses:
My father loves a moist, tender-crumb fruit cake and he's used the Alton Brown recipe to much success: http://www.foodnetwork...
this is definitely not the fruit cake that gets re-gifted...or used as a door stop!
I've made a lot of fruitcake recipes (I've been making it every Christmas for the past 11 years) and this is definitely my favorite:
Every year we make and sell spicy fruit Xmas cake and pudding locally in Cochin,India Very good recipe try this

I'm so happy to see a fruitcake pickle. Usually I just see fruitcake jokes. There's a fruitcake cookbook by Truman Capote out and also if you get an old copy of Mimi Sheraton's Christmas cookbook Visions of Sugarplums (out of print) you will have a lot of good fruitcake recipes. The best fruitcake for me is Jamaican Black Fruit Cake but so far what I make at home is not up to par. Trying again this year. For the best description, see Laurie Colwin's essay in either Home Cooking or More Home Cooking.
