This Southern Holiday Nut Cake is a rich but delicious cake. It's comforting, sweet, nutty flavors with a slight kick gives something kids and adults alike will love!

Making this cake is a tradition in my home. I'm not kidding! The holiday's don't start until this cake it made.

I can remember making this cake with my mom as a kid. It was something all of our friends and family loved and always asked for come Christmas time! I can't tell you how many times we've given this cake as a gift because that's all someone wanted.

It's truly special. I know that's weird to say about a cake but there's just something about it. It's not your traditional fruit cake, it's not a traditional nut cake, it's something for everyone.
