   Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together and
   reserve 1/4 c of the flour mixture.  Cream together
   the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, using an
   electric mixer at medium speed.  Add the eggs, one at
   a time, beating well after each addition.  Add the dry
   ingredients alternately with the milk, beating well
   after each addition.  Combine the walnuts, raisins,
   pineapple, candied cherries, lemon rind and the 1/4
   cup of reserved flour mixture until all are very well
   coated.  Stir into the batter. Spread the batter in a
   greased and wax-paper lined 10-inch tube pan. Bake in
   a 275 degree F. (That is correct, 275 degrees F.) oven
   for 2 hours and 45 minutes or until done.  Cool in the
   pan for 30 minutes before removing to a wire rack to
   completely cool.  Wrap the fruitcake tightly in foil.
   Store in the refrigerator up to 4 weeks.  When ready
   to serve or to make a gift of it, prepare the
   Pineapple glaze, and frost the top of the cake,
   letting the glaze drip down the sides.  Decorate with
   the pecan halves.
   Makes one 5 lb fruit cake. PINEAPPLE GLAZE:
   Combine 1 cup of sifted confectioners' sugar and 2 T
   of pineapple juice, mixing until smooth.
