I tasted this fruit cake (absolutely divine!), got this recipe from an Indian lady, Vee Rai. The proof is in the eating!
When the mixture is cold add 1/2 cup of brandy and 2 well beaten eggs. Then add 3 cups of selfraising flour and mix well - mixture will be soft and partly liquidish. Pour into round cake tin (23 cm) and bake in preheated oven at 160 degrees C (appx. 325 degrees F) for one hour. Test with knife or skewer to see if cooked.

I am looking for a fruitcake recipe that uses bourbon or wine. A grandparent had a recipe many years ago but has passed on and no one has her recipe. I would appreciate someone sharing their recipe if possible.

Try googling allrecipes.com. Lots of fruit cake with bourbon recipes there
I use the recipe from Bordon's Nonesuch mincemeat. Then when the cake is done I soak it in rum every few days. It is delicious. It calls for one jar mincemeat Brandy and Rum flavor. I didn't write it down buy found it by typing in nonesuch mincemeat fruitcake. Since it calls for Bordon's sweetened condensed milk the recipe might be on their web site too. You can soak this cake in Bourbon too, I just happened to have the rum. This is a great cake.
