    Roosie's Note:

    This recipe is easy-peasy to make vegan by subbing margarine or oil for the butter and leaving off the whipped cream. "This recipe is quite old, and is traditionally a Christmas dessert. I have taken it to several LLL meetings and always get requests for the recipe." - Janice Trevail of Catskill, NY. This recipe was published in the La Leche League International cookbook, Whole Foods for the Whole Family.

      This turned out great and disappeared quickly! Very moist even with the ww flour and less oil. I added some cinnamon and nutmeg and subbed apricots and figs for the dates since I didn't have any on hand. I will be making this again!

      very good,the healthiest cake I have come across..I used 1/3 cup of sugar, and used margarine isntead of butter.But it turned out soo good,very cake like(despite using whole wheat flour), more like a fruit cake sans all the fat calories..I would love to try out different dry fruits like apricots, prunes,raisins,black currants,etc..

      Wow--this is amazing!! It's like the cake part of sticky toffee pudding; moist and sweet and delicious! I made a half cake and baked it in an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan. And I used honey (1/4 cup), whole wheat pastry flour, and light olive oil. We ate it without the whipped cream and it was great! Next time I might try it with some low-fat Reddi-wip just to see how it tastes that way. I love that this is an old recipe--someone really knew how to bake! Thanks so much for posting it Roosie!!
