Although Bar Espana has a dining room, I prefer tapas at their bar
- Bar Espana: Filled with locals, this great-vibe tapas bar is <10 minutes walking from Palmas’s Cathedral. Go early (opens 6:30pm). https://www.facebook.com/barespanyapalma
- Abaco: a drop-dead gorgeous setting near the above tapas bar. Although they serve food in the upstairs dining room, I suggest going only for a glass of Cava in the magnifico downstairs---one of the most stupendous settings I’ve ever laid my eyes on. http://bar-abaco.es
- Sa Torre de Santa Eugenia: Located only a 20 minute drive from Palma inland, this is my favorite place on the entire island. The dining room is located in the estate’s old winery, and the chef is one of the best on Mallorca. Better yet, why not stay in one of the hacienda’s gorgeous rooms and simply stroll to and from dinner? https://www.sa-torre.com
Viva Mallorca! Feliz Navidad !

My recipe comes from my husband's brother, John, who gifts us each holiday season with two of these outrageous treats (it used to be one, but a few years ago I ate nearly the entire gift so he now sends one to my husband, and one to me). John informed me that the recipe he uses appeared years ago in the local newspaper of his wife Iva Lou's family in Oklahoma. John, who was a Superintendent of Schools in Kansas, began making this fruitcake years ago as Christmas gifts for his teachers. Seems his troops liked it so much that their cakes began requesting them in October! I can certainly understand why.
