“The Red Truck’s secret to their Cuban fruitcake is a light hand on the spices and giving the cake enough time to age in rum. And no colored fruit—this is the real deal!”—Virginia Living magazine

We learned to make this in Cuba in a private paladar and it’s a big favorite among those who think they hate fruitcake. This hefty loaf is full of pineapple, almonds, pecans, raisins, coconut, spices and soaked in dark rum for a couple of months. Please slice it chilled.

Started in a Virginia farmhouse over 30 years ago, Brian Noyes’ Red Truck Bakery is one of Condé Nast Traveler’s 13 Destination Bakeries in America. Named after the red 1954 Ford truck Brian used to deliver his rustic baked goods to local country stores, Red Truck Bakery has gained a cult-like following that includes Oprah and former President Barack Obama—with Roadfood’s Jane & Michael Stern being among some of their loudest and proudest early supporters.

Loved the mince pie from Red Truck. Its been a long time since I have enjoyed a well made mince pie and this one was PERFECT! Thank you Red Truck. Since this is the only purchase I have made as yet through "goldbelly," I'll wait until I make another purchase through your website before I give it the "10" it really deserves.

Gerald K. - Silver Spring, MD
My daughter said the crust was delicious, but she was expecting more spices and less fruit filling. She said it was not like the mince meat pies she had while living in England. It was good and her other guests ate it and ask what kind of pie it was, many thought it was a chutney type pie.
Marcianne K. - Portsmouth, RI
Red Truck Bakery never disappoints! Their rum cake is to die for. Moist and flavorful days after opening. Would definitely recommend.

Red Truck Bakery cake was so good the family thought it was Mom's baking. She is an excellent baker but doesn't bake as much because she is 85 now and lives alone so when she does bake she takes to neighbours to share. She said she will not be sharing the coffee cake though! LOL

Everything went well. The product is excellent and the packaging, etc. was tops.

Normally, I would shop for many of the Goldbelly items locally.

donna w. - Davidsonville, MD
The ordering went well, the way I could pay as a guest and not open an account. The Chocolate Moonshine cake I had sent to my neighbor, when she received the cake for Christmas, but (arrived January 12th, which Red Truck could not help it, because of covid.) The neighbor gave me three slices of it, it was yummy! So I will be ordering more in the near future for other friends of mine. Thank you.
