Celebration IPA Fruitcake


1 box (15.25 oz) spice cake mix
1 cup Celebration Fresh Hop IPA
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1.5 cup nuts (chopped walnuts, pecan halves)
2.5 cups dried fruit (cherries, raisins, chopped dates, chopped pineapple)
1/4 cup flour


Step 1

Preheat oven to 300°F. Lightly grease two 9x5-inch loaf pans and line them with parchment.

Step 2

Combine nuts, dried fruit, and flour in a large mixing bowl. Toss well to coat evenly.

Step 3

In another large mixing bowl, combine spice cake mix, Celebration IPA, vegetable oil, and eggs. Beat for 3 minutes. Fold in fruit-and-nut mixture.

Step 4

Pour batter evenly into loaf pans and bake for 90 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Step 5

Let cool in pan. When cakes are completely cool, wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and store at room temperature.
