Testimonials

Throughout the years we have received positive comments on our cakes from many well-known persons.

Narcai David, Ann Landers, The Chicago Tribune, and Carmel Magazine have all published glowing reviews.

""When you forwarded that article describing how the monks of the New Camaldoli Hermitage are coping with their financial crisis, you claimed that their fruitcake is the best fruitcake in the world. I thought you were exaggerating. Not now! This stuff is preternaturally delectable! It's not just the best fruitcake in the world, it's the best fruitcake in the known universe. I love the way it sticks to everything, leaving brandy prints on breadboards, plates, fingers, clothing, you name it. And surprisingly, the list of ingredients shows that this celestial cake made by meditative Christians is better nutritionally too, compared to the vast majority of desserts." "  Vance Aandahl

"I shared it with my colleagues at a station meeting. At first they were hesitant but after they got a whiff of brandy, they were eating out of my hand :)"  Becca

"I don't even like fruitcake, and avoid it at all costs. But I was given a free sample, and I'll probably stop only when the samples run out."  E. B.

"Your gourmet fruitcake tastes just like my mother in England used to make - delicious!"  L. H. UK

"Best I ever tasted."  L.A.R. Port Huron, MI

"Delicious! A favorite! You are going to love it!"  Narsai David, CBS food critic

"Last year I was given a fruitcake . . . most delicious our family ever tasted - far better than I've ever made (and I thought they were excellent)."  Margaret H. , Palm Springs, CA

"Thank you for your product It's wonderful."  Anatol B., CA

Fruitcakes 

That old story about the same fruitcake getting passed around every holiday season just isn’t true, at least not for our brandy-dipped fruitcakes and date-nut cakes. These cakes disappear quickly, which is why we still make the same, full sized fruitcakes and date-nut cakes we always have, from the same decades old recipe.
Our brandy-dipped fruitcakes and date-nut cakes have stood the test of time, standing out even among other monastic cakes. Moist, delicious, well reviewed by food experts, frCakesuitcake lovers, and even fruitcake skeptics! Half the secret is the brandy dipping, but that’s really no secret. Our carefully baked fruitcakes and date-nut cakes are aged at least 3 months in a temperature controlled environment.
Our Hermitage fruitcakes are made with cherries, pineapples, California raisins, walnuts, dates, and Georgia pecans. Our date-nut cakes are made with choice California dates and fresh walnuts, which are blended with a variety of spices. Cakes are dipped in grape brandy and aged for 3 to 6 months. For holidays -or any special occasion- send a cake to everyone on your gift list with one simple billing. A special message that you create is included with every gift order.
