Thick as a Brick
You know the joke, "There is only one fruitcake in the entire world, and people keep sending it to each other." Well, I'm pretty sure it's true, and I pretty much consider fruitcake an insult to the fine art of baking. Like our Congress, the traditional mixture of fruit, cake, and nuts results in something not only freakishly unattractive, but also decidedly unpalatable. Both should be thrown out immediately before someone gets hurt.
However. That does not mean one cannot successfully mix these three elements into a batter and create something not only inoffensive, but also divinely edible.
Seriously. I have done it.
Head on over to the Undaunted Baker and see for yourself.
