Nut-Crusted Chocolate-Banana Swirl Cake

This cake was easy to make.  Everyone who had a slice liked it.  What surprised me is that it isn't a terribly sweet cake.  The banana flavor was even better the next day.

Rose's Fruitcake

This is the third year I've made Rose's Fruitcake.  It is the first thing requested when the holidays roll around.
I felt a teeny bit smug getting the candied rind, cherries and raisins into the rum for a good long soak back in November.  Christmas came and went and the fruit continued to happily slosh about in the rum.  This past weekend I finally got around to mixing it up.  Once again, Rose's fruitcake was a hit!  It never ceases to amaze me how people who profess to detest fruitcake like Rose's version.
