OK, I know everyone thinks they hate fruitcake, but I PROMISE this one is totally different from the "normal" fruitcake. It's delicious! You won't be disappointed if you try it. It's very festive around the holidays.
1 pound butter
2 cups sugar
6 eggs, separated
4 cups flour (including dredging)
1 ½ ounces lemon extract
1 pound mixed fruit cake mix
1 pound chopped pecans (4 cups)
1 pound seeded white raisins
Cream butter and sugar, add egg yolks one at a time. Dredge fruit cake mix, raisins and pecans and add to mixture after flour. Add lemon extract. Fold in egg whites which have been stiffly beaten. Bake at 275 for 2 hours.
