Assumption Abbey Fruit Cake in Traditional Tin
Nothing tastes quite like a rich dark fruit cake made with dried fruits, nuts and liquor. There are so many different versions of these from all over the civilised world (and even some from the uncivilised world), but each version has its own characteristic flavor and ingredients depending on what produce is traditionally used in that region.
The Assumption Abbey Fruitcake is made by a small community of Trappist monks in Ava Missouri. The recipe for the Assumption Abbey fruitcakes was sought from the world-class chef, Jean-Pierre Auge who at one time worked in the kitchens of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The chef provided the recipe and various ideas for production and taught the monks how to go about producing these wonderful and unique fruitcakes.

The fruitcakes are a traditional style of cake filled with dried fruit, nuts and heaps of brown sugar. The cakes are baked slowly and then aged under the supervision of the monks who do not run this as a commercial enterprise. They can, therefore, concentrate more fully on the quality of the ingredients and the final product rather than on how much profit they make. Assumption Abbey fruitcakes are not there for making a profit they are a way of life which, combined with the skill of the bakers is guaranteed to produce a consistently high-quality fruitcake that ranks amongst the country’s finest.
Each cake weighs about 32oz (2 lbs) and serves about seven to eight people (depending on the size of the slice).
