From the Abbey of
Our Lady of Guadalupe
TRAPPIST 1-LB. FRUITCAKES
Old-fashioned, dark, rich, and moist cakes baked by Trappist monks using the finest ingredients – dried and candied fruits, nuts, and local farm-fresh eggs.
I love fruitcake and have eaten a lot of it in my life. However, this was the best fruitcake I have ever had.
This is not your ordinary Fruitcake. I normally do not like these cakes but, Monastery Fruitcakes are very GOOD. Would make wonderful gifts.
My mother, to whom we sent the cake, said it was rich and delicious--a small piece at a time, with tea or coffee, was a real treat. She also said the bakers didn't stint on the brandy! Thank you all.
Since I'm the only one in our home who likes fruitcake, every November I order the one pound "Trappist Abbey Our Lady of Guadalupe" fruitcake for my myself. I'm careful to enjoy it for a while, so I cut a piece only about 1/4" thick have it for about a month. It's the best, so moist and "heavyweight" with all the good fruits and walnuts of a delectable cake.
I get this every year and it is GREAT!
This was a gift for my husband. The fruitcake was amazing. Service was excellent. Thanks for making it easy to support our church!
I've been purchasing fruit cake for my mom from several "brand" name gourmet stores. This year I purchased from Monastery Greetings and my mom said this was the best fruit cake she's ever tasted. I'll definitely be purchasing from Monastery Greetings again.
It is probably my own fault but I read the description and assumed dried fruit meant dried fruit, not candied fruit. I should have looked more closely at the picture. Would be great if I liked candied fruit but I don't. However, it is a good moist cake.
This fruitcake was the best I've had since I was a child when each Christ- mas we were given a special homemade brandy fruitcake. Next time I will buy a 2 or 3 lb. cake.
Best fruitcake ever! We were not able to find a really good one for decades. The company we dealt with cheapened the product to something dry and mostly cake.
this fruitcake was real good. the only problem is I only ordered a one pound cake, I should have ordered a bigger one.
The fruitcake was indeed heavenly! The perfect tea time treat!
I buy this fruitcake once a year because I'm a heart patient and must watch the fat content, so I treat myself to the best fruitcake that I know!
Every year for the past several, I have gotten the one pound Brandy fruitcake. It is just enough to get me through the season and it is always, always good!
It has become our family tradition to order this fruitcake for many years. It is the closest to my great-great grandmother's recipe that we have found. We always wait to slice it on Christmas morning after all the presents are open.Just wouldn't be Christmas without it.
Absolutely delicious. Rich, loaded with nuts and fruits, wonderful flavor. Shipping was fast.
The best fruitcake I ever tasted! Very rich, moist and fresh. I hope next time you will make them a little bigger! I will highly recommend this product to anyone.
I really love this fruitcake and you could actually taste the brandy. It is so rich that I would have only a very small piece each night. I purchased my second Abbey's fruitcake from Amazon. For some reason the one I bought directly from the Abbey's online store tasted better...not sure why. Anyway, I highly recommend this cake and well worth the price.
This is the only fruitcake I will buy. The balance of flavors and density of fruit is perfect and the liquor is a plus. I buy it for friends and I buy it for myself. You won't be disappointed!
This is the best fruitcake we have ever had. We very highly recommend it to anyone.
This is exactly the way my auntie made fruitcake it can't be any better.
The absolutely best fruit cake I have ever purchased. My wife & I both feel the same about this fruitcake.
These brandy fruitcakes from the Monastery are the best fruitcakes EVER! All of the people to whom I sent these fruitcakes last Christmas are just waiting, hoping for another one. I'll place my group order early so that we don't miss getting them this year. Many thanks for a delicious treat.
moist, compact with fruit & nuts and above all, moist!
I received it in very good and moist condition. It was chockful of fruits and nuts just exactly how I remember eating it in my childhood days. I will definitely order it again next year.
Delicious! We finished the first one and immediately ordered a second! Will order again next year!
Just the right amount of Fruit and Nuts. Not a lot of dough in this cake and that's what I like about the Best. Well the Brandy maybe the BEST PART. LOL. Keep Baking! I'll be BACK.
I just don't like fruitcake, that is until I bought the one lb. one. So good I hated to have to share it. Will buy again for sure, and not just around the holidays.
