    Super Easy Fruit Cake

    1 pound candied cherries, halved
    5 candied pineapple slices
    6 cups golden raisins
    1 1/2 cups candied mixed fruit peel
    1 cup pecans
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    2 cups butter, softened
    2 cups white sugar
    6 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 cup orange juice
    5 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    6 pecans


    Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Line the bottom and sides of two greased 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pans with brown paper. Grease the paper.

    In a large bowl, stir together cherries, pineapple, raisins, mixed peel, 1 cup pecans, and 1 cup flour. Mix until the fruit is coated with flour. In another large bowl, cream the butter or margarine and sugar together. Beat in eggs 1 at a time. Mix in orange juice and vanilla. Combine 5 cups flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Stir in floured fruit and nuts. Mix. Spoon batter into prepared pans. Fill each pan 3/4 full. Arrange pecans over tops.

    Bake for about 3 hours, until toothpick comes out clean. Cover with foil if top gets too dark while baking.
