A Fruitcake Company Based in America's Heartland
Beatrice Bakery Company bakes some of the best fruit cake and dessert items in the world. While we bake a variety of artisan cakes, dessert liqueur cakes, breakfast breads, and coffee cakes, our old-fashioned fruit cake is by far, our most popular.
Grandma's Original Fruit & Nut Cake is a traditional fruit cake that demonstrates our commitment to baking handmade fruit cake with only the finest ingredients. The traditional grandma fruitcake is made with the rich wholesome goodness of ripe cherries, succulent pineapples, plump raisins, crunchy almonds, English walnuts and pecans. These ingredients are mixed into a batter enriched with the perfect amount of bourbon, rum and brandy. No citron or orange peel!
The Story of Our Famous Fruit Cake
Our beloved recipe, dating back to 1917, has been preserved through the years. The homemade goodness was first introduced to the public in St. Louis, Missouri by two German immigrant brothers. The Lantz brothers owned and operated a bakery where they discovered a family fruit cake recipe in their grandmother's cookbook. The recipe took off, and the Lantz brothers soon found themselves searching for a bigger facility to produce their grandmother's recipe. In 1964, their search took them to Beatrice, Nebraska and the current facility, nestled in America's heartland.
The Nebraska bakery changed names and ownership several times before becoming nationally known as Beatrice Bakery Co in 2002. Despite the changes, the original fruitcake recipe remained the same.
Our old fashioned fruit cakes are some of the best around. In fact, they have been featured on Food Network's UNWRAPPED “Holiday Favorites” episode, A&E Biography's “The House that Santa Built”, on ABC's THE VIEW's “Holiday Candies, Cookies and Cakes” segment and received editorial recognition in Midwest Living magazine. Grandma's Fruit & Nut Cake is a must have holiday tradition for many generations!
