I was excited to find this one, so I am posting it without actually having made it. Think it might be good as I have a diabetic husband. I found it in the paper (Herald Sun)

This has made a lovely golden fruit cake. I made mine in slice form and so it cooked in 30 minutes. I added a few chopped dried apricots along with the other dried fruit so this does add some sweetness. If you don't have allergies then you could ice it if you were missing the sugar. It was easy to do and smelled great coming out of the oven
