"It's almost all stuff," says Baldwin. "It's not just flour and sugar like a lot of cakes. Really," he says, "the batter's function is to hold the stuff together." That stuff is candied oranges and ginger, rum-soaked cherries, and oven-roasted walnuts. Once baked, Houseman's fruitcake weighs close to two pounds, which for us well justifies its $42 price. You can, and should, order it here. Baldwin will ship to you, but if you pick it up at the restaurant there will be complimentary warm, spiked, spiced cider waiting for you.
