My handcrafted fruitcakes

...the best ingredients make for a premium cake, a celebration of uncompromising taste and quality.

Ken’s Fruitcake is a rich and wholesome wonder, made with the finest ingredients available. Home-crafted, Ken’s Fruitcake is a luxury item made to be enjoyed on festive occasions. They are created from recipes handed down in the European baking tradition.

Handcrafted in small quantities, this gastronomic labour of love boasts nuanced aromas of dark berries with hints of spirits, syrups and spices. Each loaf weighs 900 grams. Each is aged for months, allowing for the natural fruit juices to combine and transform sugars into flavors. Only through the aging process can Ken’s achieve the subtle savors, dark semi-moist texture and consistency akin to mature Ports or Classic Vintages.

Each tin contains 900g. 11 Flavors. 100% natural, all vegetal, sulphite free.*

Epiphanie, cherry/cranberry, hibiscus infused

Epiphanie
Made with Cranberries grown in Quebec and Choke Cherries from Saskatchewan, this one is a proven winner. Infused with Kirsch, Epiphanie has a delightfully tart flavor. Baked in 2016, is one of the 6 Delices variety tin. Had Grannie tried this one, I think she would have hung up her apron!

Skvortsov
The Haskap Berry, aka Blue Honey Suckle, has been shown to contain powerful antioxidants - and truly a wonder berry! New to Canada, but grown in the Hokkaido region of Northern Japan for centuries. Many Japanese attribute their wellness and longevity to the Haskappu. Baked in 2016, this cakes is my most flavorful. Too bad Grannie didn't like to travel much, or she would have discovered the wonders of the Haskap herself!
