Similar to mandabears' Thisbe Fruit Loaf, this cake looks like it would be a welcome addition to a Sunday brunch. I have not tried this one yet but plan to soon. Submitted for the UK leg of the Zaar World Tour.

Excellent!!! I loved it, so tasty and so healthy! A lovely cake with no butter and oil at all!!! I used dried dates, figs, apricots, prunes and raisins. Its so tasty and full of fibers. Thanks for sharing!
