About the Hausfrau: Who Wants to Know?

You want to know who the Hausfrau is? She’s a person who used to be a bookseller, used to be able to stay up past 11 p.m., used to go to shows. Now she’s usually in bed by 9.30, usually at home, and usually none too pleased with the state of things. She lives in a very nice neighborhood in a college town in Connecticut, which sounds very tony but it isn’t, really. Not for the Hausfrau. She’s just been here so long, she’s grandfathered in.

    1. Hi! It seems to me that I was also a little apprehensive on this point, because I actually expected the cake to seem rather “wet” as well. I think, though, that I just kept testing it with a toothpick until the toothpick came out pretty clean. It took a long time, though, to be sure. I think were I to do this again I would assume close to two hours baking time.
      We’ve eaten the cake (I spent much of today delivering cakes as gifts in fact!) and they’ve gotten good reviews — so presumably if one really likes fruitcakes, this kind of enterprise is worthwhile. For me, though, I think I’m going to stick to Aunt Velma.
