Assumption Abbey: Ava, Missouri
Assumption Abbey is a community of monks of the Cistercian Order of the Strict Observance, popularly known as Trappists. The Abbey was founded from New Melleray Abbey in Iowa in 1950, in the rugged foothills of the Ozarks, some twenty miles south of the small town of Ava, Missouri. Through the years, the brothers have continued to live by the centuries old Trappist tradition of contemplation and study, private prayer and common worship, earning their living by the work of their own hands.
Each year the monks make thousands of their popular fruitcakes, which are known for their deep, complex flavor that improves with age. Their recipe was developed with the help of world class chef Jean-Pierre Augé, who at one time served in the employ of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

This fruitcake was so delicious that I had to control myself from eating the whole cake in one week. As soon as it was gone, I ordered another and I savored the second for several weeks. This cake was . outstanding in flavor and texture. I loved it.
Everyone loves them

This is the way I give most of my Christmas Gifts every year. Everyone loves them. No shopping, no guessing if it fits, no going from store to store, and no guessing if this is the right size? Thank you Monastery Bakery.

Have tried many different company's rum cake and this is by far the best! Will recommend to all my friends!
Jan 7, 2017 | By BOB D.
I highly recommend the fruitcake. I always get two as one is for a gift to my sister-in-law who loves fruitcake and could not find one to her liking. This fruitcake did it for her as she now knows and expects one. So if you like fruitcake and want a really good one this is the place.

The fruitcake was delivered on time and tasted so good, we had to buy a second one for the Holidays.

I wondered about purchasing this fruitcake, for it was rum and not brandy and seemed lighter in color than the other offering in the catalogue. I should not have worried. We opened it first, just in case, and there was nothing to be concerned about. Moist, great taste, and full of fruit. We bought one for a relative, and he agreed. This is a great fruitcake.

My Uncle said it was delicious!

Moist, rich flavor, rum flavored but not too strong. Will order again. A bit pricey compared to other fruit cakes I order.

If you are a fruitcake fan, this is one of the best. Don't miss it. Warning: it has alcohol.

I've been purchasing this fruitcake for many years for my Dad's Birthday or Christmas, which is in the same time frame. My Dad loves loves loves it. I sent him a different gift 2 yrs earlier and he said he was devastated. He missed the fruitcake. It is his favorite, So from then on, I knew it is a must buy for Dad.
Trappist Rum Fruitcake

It would not be Christmas dinner for me without a traditional fruitcake on the table. Yours is perfect, exactly the way I remember it from my childhood and onward for over 70 years. I just wish you made them a little bit bigger so we could cut more cake style portions (equal height and width). Thank you so much for making this cake available.
