    I have to admit, I’m not a fan of fruitcake. But since you insist it’s not fruitcake, and I must admit, it looks gorgeous… maybe I’ll give it a go XD

    I’m so easily manipulated, haha.

      Indigo, it’s so good, whether it’s fruitcake or not!

    I must be one of the few people left who utterly love fruit cake. This recipe for panaforte looks very interesting and I will definately have to give it a go.

    I love panforte- I’d wondered how this recipe was. I was hesitant to try it because people told me the panforte recipe in Donna Hay’s New Classics 2 was bad.

    I love dense fruit and nut cakes. Fruit cakes in general are fine by me as long as they don’t have gross, cheap, neon-colored fruit in them.

      Lisa, I don’t mind real fruit cakes either, as long as they’re not stale. Alice’s recipe is very good. I also saved one from Gina de Palma’s Dolce Italiano, but I’m not even going to bother trying that one!

    I make this with pistachios, on top of the almonds and hazelnuts; I find the green makes for a nice colour variation. And just a pinch of extra ginger gives it a nice kick.
