Baker puts heart, soul into abbey’s fruitcake
Whether it’s a deep-seated hatred, cold-hearted humor or blind affection, no other food prompts as visceral a reaction as fruitcake. It’s the gift that keeps getting re-gifted, a dish given wide berth at holiday dinner parties. It is the Brussels sprouts of the dessert world. For some though, it’s a luxurious treat, one with a heady aroma and dense filling. The task of baking this marginally beloved cake falls to the monks of Holy Cross Abbey.

The monks here bake some 10,000 fruitcakes a year, from January to September, and then ship them out primarily for the Christmas season. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
