  • Summary

    This recipe from reader Carol J. Rhodes of Houston, Texas, is lighter in texture and more delicate than traditional fruitcake, yet keeps all its appeal with nutmeg, pecans, raisins, and a touch of brandy.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups (4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pan
    • 4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for pan
    • 2 tablespoons ground nutmeg
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 2 1/4 cups packed light-brown sugar (1 pound)
    • 6 large eggs
    • 1/2 cup brandy
    • 3 cups pecans, chopped (about 12 ounces)
    • 3 cups raisins (1 pound)
    • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
    • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon orange juice
