Monastery Info


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.

  • 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.

  • Great fruitcake

  • 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.

  • Posted by Peter D. on Jan 3, 2017
  • Excellent Fruitcake

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

  • Best Fruitcake

  • 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.

  • Outstanding Fruitcake!

  • 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.

  • Best fruitcake!!

  • This is the best fruitcake. We used to order from the Abbey of the Genesee, but they had stopped making them on the premises. So glad we found you. Moist, fruity and tasty. Thank you for making our Christmas season delicious. Sandy

  • Posted by Sandra on Dec 4, 2018
  • Oh lordy, we love these things!

  • We get several of these every year intending to give them as gifts. So far this year our record is - Ate 'em already 2, saved for gift 1, - and it's not looking too good for gift. This from people who have made every fruitcake joke there is. Sliced not too thin, toasted lightly or warmed in the microwave, buttered, like plum pudding with hard sauce. You owe it to yourself to experience this. But be warned, you'll never crack wise about fruitcake again.

  • Posted by Wendie H. on Dec 5, 2018
