Even if you are not a fruitcake lover, we think your bird will love this wonderful holiday fruit cake with loads of fruit goodness.
1 package Harrison's Bird Bread (or any Bird Bread you have on hand)
one package Zupreem Tropical Mix
Or some of Dr. Harvey's Exotic Parrot Blend
2 large eggs
1 small size bag of fresh cranberries

Add 1 to 2 cups of the fruit mix and then stir and mix all ingredients together.
Rinse cranberries and add to mixture and stir.
Then add 2 cups of water to the mixture and mix thoroughly.
Lightly spray round aluminum or other cake or bundt pan (or any shape pan you prefer)
Pour mixture into the pan and smooth top with a spoon.
Bake in a 350-degree oven for approximately 50 minutes. Ovens vary in cooking time, so check with toothpick or butter knife that inserts and removes cleanly.
Cool for approximately 10 minutes and place a large plate on the top of the cake. Gently flip cake pan and plate upside down, gently tapping the bottom of the pan to help cake slide out onto the plate.
Serve and watch your bird thoroughly enjoy all the holiday yummy goodness.
