I found out that this fruitcake, was made by Beatrice Baking Co. [ www. Beatricebakery.com]
Beatrice Bakery 201 S 5th St. Beatrice, NE 68310 , but they no longer make that fruitcake,
[masterpiece fruitcake] but they say their Beatrice’s original Grandma’s Fruit and Nut cake
is the closest to Sears Masterpiece fruitcake
Well, what I found is a little different. The info that I found is that the "Masterpiece"
fruitcake contained alcohol and was therefore not the same as the "Butter Batter."
The "Grandma's Original" is like the "Masterpiece", but not like the "Butter Batter."
The "Ye Olde English" is like the "Butter Batter" and contains no alcohol.
See: Ask Lisa
and see what Beatrice Bakery says on their website here:

Some reviewers say that "Jane Parker Classic Fruitcake" is like "Butter Batter."

At least one reviewer says that Swiss Colony Christmas Fruitcake is like "Butter Batter":

I still could not find any recipe that claimed to be a copycat or a "tastes-like" recipe for Sears Butter Batter Fruitcake.
