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.
The dessert cake was back ordered, therefore I did not receive it so I cannot review it. I did request a substitute fruitcake which was delicious. I wish it had come sooner than it did, but that does not change the quality of the product.
I bought the fruitcake as a gift for my sister. I am not a fan of fruit cake but she absolutely is. She is still talking about it to the point where I put it on my calendar for next year to make sure I buy another one for her! According to her it's the best one she ever ate!!!
Just tastes light fruitcake when I was a little boy 70+ years ago. Full of fruit and just that right hint of brandy! Always tastes better around Thanksgiving and Christmas, for some mental reason!
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.
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.
Delicious! We finished the first one and immediately ordered a second! Will order again next year!
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.
moist, compact with fruit & nuts and above all, moist!
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.
The absolutely best fruit cake I have ever purchased. My wife & I both feel the same about this fruitcake.
This is exactly the way my auntie made fruitcake it can't be any better.
This is the best fruitcake we have ever had. We very highly recommend it to anyone.
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!
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.
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.
Absolutely delicious. Rich, loaded with nuts and fruits, wonderful flavor. Shipping was fast.
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.
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!
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!
The fruitcake was indeed heavenly! The perfect tea time treat!
this fruitcake was real good. the only problem is I only ordered a one pound cake, I should have ordered a bigger one.
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 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.
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.
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.
This was a gift for my husband. The fruitcake was amazing. Service was excellent. Thanks for making it easy to support our church!
I get this every year and it is GREAT!
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.
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.
This is not your ordinary Fruitcake. I normally do not like these cakes but, Monastery Fruitcakes are very GOOD. Would make wonderful gifts.
I love fruitcake and have eaten a lot of it in my life. However, this was the best fruitcake I have ever had.
