It's certainly not a quickbread, nor have I ever seen it listed as such in
any cookbook. It is generally listed under cakes, subcategory, fruitcakes.

Why not set up a category for Christmas or Holiday foods. I have one
for Thanksgiving since most of the things I cook then I may also do
for Christmas but rarely any other time of year.

Thanks! I do have a Christmas category. I'll just stick with that
for the fruitcakes. In the US, that's the only time most people make
them.

Christmas. Dessert. Miscellaneous. Any or all. It's constructed more
like a cake than a quick bread, IIR,

In my experience (eating, not baking): Doorstop.

Cake. A lot of fruit cakes are a pound cake base.

I tell ya, the batter for this fruitcake is good enough to eat with a
spoon, and forget about the fruit and the oven. It does seem to have
all the components of a pound cake, but i'm not sure if the
proportions are right.
