This is a big fruitcake recipe but you can easily half it. Using half, you can make 22 cupcakes. If you do make cupcakes, only bake them for 40 minutes.
1 lb. candied cherries, chopped
1 lb. dates, pitted and chopped
1 lb. candied pineapple, chopped
1 lb. pecans, chopped
4 (8 oz.) pkgs. coconut
3 Tbsp. flour
2 (14 oz.) cans sweetened condensed milk
This fruitcake can be served right away, but is better if you let it sit in the refrigerator for several days to a week to allow the flavors to meld.
