When I went to Newfoundland last year, I went to Bidgood’s Market and ate fruit cake—boiled fruit cake, to be precise. It had a very profound effect on me. I raced home, tinkered a little with some recipes and developed this little gem. It’s the perfect tea bread for Christmas Day, Christmas gifting, Christmas brunch…or any day of the year.
