“This recipe is adapted from Zusie-Q's Rock Cakes recipe (#110691). Use your favorite dried fruits. My grandmother's version called for raisins and chopped maraschino cherries. I like cranberries and chopped apricots. Note: if you're using cranberries, adding a shaving of orange zest compliments them nicely. Even chocolate chips work nicely here (paired with fruit).”
