I just had to share this recent find. Since my celiac diagnosis 4 years ago I have pined away at holiday time for a piece of fruitcake. While this fruitcake is not certified gluten free (I am VERY sensitive), I spoke to the owner about their handling, separation and baking process for the gluten-free version of their fruitcakes. The answers satisfied me enough to give it a try, that and the fact that it was a gluten-intolerant doctor friend of his that asked him to develop a gluten free version (the owner said his doctor friend was his gluten-free tester, while he perfected it with various gluten-free flour blends).

It's a little pricey, but it's my Christmas gift to myself! So far I've had two nut and fruit rich magnificent pieces and have had no ill effects.

They are from Dot & Eva's Oven in PA, www.dotevasoven.com, should you want to give it a try.

I, for one, am delighted with it.

Happy Holidays to All!

AHA! Another fruitcake lover. We are few and far between. I make my own fruitcake using my grandmother's recipe only substituting Cup-4-Cup flour for the regular flour. It comes out perfect. Now if only it didn't have several thousand calories per tiny slice.....

I think Kinnikinnick in Canada sells this "holiday loaf" which is gluten free, during Nov and Dec, and has dried fruit and spices in it. It also does not have nuts. It's called Festive Bread. I haven't seen it down here yet.
