  • These scrumptious fruitcakes are baked slowly and aged under the careful supervision of the Assumption Abbey Monks.
  • The Assumption Abbey Fruitcakes are carefully marinated, mixed, baked, packaged and aged right at the monastery.
  • And instead of a commercial enterprise, it is a way of life to support the Abbey and the contemplation and study they engage in.
  • The Monks gleaned their special recipe from Jean-Pierre Auge, once a chef of the Duke & Duchess of Windsor
  • The recipe calls for red and green cherries, currants, pineapple, lemons, oranges, walnuts, pecans, raisins and burgundy wine and to top it off the fabulous taste, it is then injected with 2 oz of rum
