|From out of the past comes a remarkable delicacy for today!
Shortly after the Great Exposition which made "Meet Me In St. Louis" the hit of Sunday night band concerts all over America, two brothers spent long nights in the tiny office of their St. Louis bake shop searching for a way to keep bakers busy during the slack summer months. They needed something special – to be prepared in summer, sold throughout the winter.
In 1917, their search ended. They came upon a recipe for an extraordinary fruit cake – a recipe so cherished that their father, who brought it from Germany, had carefully hidden it away. It called for a fruit cake requiring long, lazy, gentle mellowing to achieve perfection. The brothers tried the recipe, put the result to the test of American taste, and the new delicacy achieved widespread acclaim. Today, their Old World recipe plus their demanding baking techniques form an honored tradition.
To assure old-fashioned goodness, we search wherever wind, sun, soil, and moisture best combine to produce the finest ingredients. Then only Master Bakers are allowed to perform the meticulous blending, baking, and mellowing of this superb fruit cake.
While some fruit cakes are made principally to satisfy the eye, Grandma’s Fruit Cake is expressly created to satisfy the demands of a gourmet’s palate. Note the absence of citron, peel, prunes, and other fillers, heavy spices, frequently found in lesser products. No molasses or corn syrup is used, either. Instead, moisture comes from the natural juices of fruits and nutmeats – from aged-in-the-wood bourbon, New England rum, and costly brandies. You can expect only the harmony of nature’s finest flavors to be exquisitely blended in every Grandma’s Fruit Cake.
Grandma's fabulous Fruit Cakes are made with rich rum, bourbon, brandy, real fruit and select nuts! A unique offering is chocolate-covered fruitcake - a Dublin OH delicacy. Other favorites are golden amaretto and pineapple-macadamia nut cakes. Also offering gourmet chocolates, chocolate-covered cherries and blueberries as well as nut baskets.
