These fruit cakes have a damaged box but the fruit cakes are fine.
Assumption Abbey fruit cakes are a dark, rich traditional style fruit cake, made by Trappist monks in a small monastery in Ava, Missouri, who oversee all stages of production. This rich, dark and spicy fruit cake is spiked with burgundy wine and rum, and studded with English walnuts, pecans, pineapple, cherries, raisins, currants, South American citron, and orange and lemon peel as well. This fruit cake is one of our favorites. A perfect balance between cake, nuts, fruit and rum - not too much of any one thing. This two pound fruit cake serves 7-8. You can use our fruit cakes as Christmas fruit cakes as well!
About the Abbey
Assumption Abbey is a secluded Trappist monastery nestled in the foothills of the Missouri Ozarks. It was established in 1950 by a group of monks from New Melleray Abbey in Dubuque, Iowa. Through the years, the brothers of Assumption Abbey have been known for the dedicated lives they lead and their traditional hospitality. Trappist Monks are members of the Cistercian Order which was founded in France in the eleventh century at the Monastery of Citeaux, from which the Order takes its name. The name Trappist comes from the Monastery of LaTrappe which played a prominent role in a later reform within the Order. Assumption Abbey is one of the seventeen Trappist monasteries in the US, many of whom support themselves through the production and sales of specialized food items, and all of whom continue to live by the centuries old Trappist tradition of contemplation and study, common worship, and living by the work of their own hands.
About Fruitcakes When Assumption Abbey was first developing its bakery, the monks sought the help of world class chef Jean-Pierre Auge, who at one time served in the royal employ of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Mr. Auge's assistance and his generosity in providing the recipe and ideas for production gave the monks the impetus to go forward with the Assumption Abbey fruit cakes. Assumption Abbey fruit cakes are the dark, rich, traditional style of fruit cake. They are baked slowly and aged under the careful supervision of the monks. Everything, from marinating the fruit, to mixing, to baking, to packaging, to aging, to mailing is done right at the monastery by the monks. Assumption Abbey is not a commercial enterprise. It is a way of life, and that way of life, combined with the careful work of the bakers, insures a dedication to high quality that make Assumption Abbey fruit cakes among the country's finest.
This classic coffee cake makes a great gift; the cake is presented in a tasteful white tin with a picture of the Trappist Monks on the label. Assumption Abbey fruit cakes are among this country's finest. Celebrating 23 years of prayerful baking in 2011!
