You know that old story about how most fruitcakes never get eaten, they're just given as gifts? Well, that's not the case with this no-bake one. It's gonna get eaten...and sure, you can give it as a gift because it's one they're gonna really love!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (13.5-ounce) package graham crackers, crushed
  • 2 (6 ounces) containers candied cherries (1 red and 1 green), coarsely chopped
  • 1 (6 ounces) container candied pineapple
  • 2 (14 ounces each) cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans

What to Do

  1. Line 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap, letting wrap hang over sides a few inches.
  2. In large bowl, combine all ingredients and thoroughly mix with your clean hands. Place mixture into lined pan and cover well. Freeze for at least 8 hours, or overnight before serving.
  3. To serve, remove from freezer, invert over serving platter, remove pan and plastic wrap, and cut into slices. Store any remaining cake in freezer.


This is a very rich cake, so keep in mind that a small slice will go a long way!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Yes, you can use any dried fruit. I've used raisins and dates. I chop up the dates into smaller pieces, though. I have also added coconut flakes before as well.

My grandmother made a "Plum Pudding" similar to this with grape nuts and lemon jello

try subing graham crackers with vanilla wafers ooooh so good

can you used dried cranberries or dried fruits in place of the candied cherries?

My husband will love it and thank u...:)
