Not sure whether you want a date-nut or fruitcake? Why not order our sampler pack and get both flavors? Save by ordering two, and please all the sophisticated palates in your home! This sampler pack contains a 3lb date-nut cake and a 3lb fruitcake. Enough flavor to power a small city for 48hrs! And remember, we have a very limited quantity of 3lb cakes in both flavors this year – once we are out, that’s it.
Date-Nut Cake: these cakes are a little less moist than our fruitcake and not quite as intense, which makes them perfect for an all-occasion dessert. And they are versatile – use them all year long for dessert, snacks or one-of-a-kind gifts! Rich enough that a slice will satisfy most folks. Imagine whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on top of your slice, with perhaps some warm caramel sauce! Enough to tempt all but the most disciplined angels.
Fruitcake: you’ll truly notice the difference between this gourmet delight and the average fruitcake on the market. Featuring the Hermitages own secret recipe, which is nearly 50 years old. Made with cherries, pineapples, California raisins, walnuts, dates, and Georgia pecans, and soaked in brandy. Moist and rich – a small slice will satisfy you. A wonderful treat for the Holidays or any time of the year. And it makes a welcome gift, unlike the store-bought variety. This is the cake that everyone talks about and that has converted many a fruitcake “atheist”.
By the way – our aged cakes keep well in the refrigerator or freezer. Just wrap them in a few layers of plastic wrap and they will stay fresh and moist until your next craving.
