By ALAN NAPOLITANOThe Associated PressWASHINGTON — A spoonful of spoon fruitcake is an easy dessert for a busy family dinner.
But a spoonful is a recipe that requires lots of time and planning, so prepare ahead and be prepared to eat a little spoonfuls of spoonfulcake.
Here’s how to make spoon fruitcakes:Make the batter.
Sprinkle the sugar and flour with a little salt and a little cinnamon.
Beat the eggs, butter, and vanilla in a bowl.
Mix until smooth.
Cook the cake.
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the flour, eggs, and sugar, stirring until combined.
Cook, stirring constantly, until the batter is thickened.
Remove the pan from the heat.
Spoon about a teaspoon of batter into each of your bowls.
(You can use a fork, but don’t be tempted.)
Top each spoonful with a spoon of fruitcake and serve immediately.
