This is so good, it reminded me when my mum used to make a bran loaf it was a bit different from this one, hers had raisins. I think apricots and peaches have a lower GI than raisins so they are much better for us diabetics. I did think there was a lot of fruit in it and the next time I will just add one cup of fruit but it was very good. I love fruit cake of any kind and it's nice to know now I am diabetic I can still have this. The girls at work will love this so so nice. Thank you for posting. made for diabetic month November 2010
