Low fat and sugar fruit loaf

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by mish hoffmann

When my husband and I found out he had high colesterol and I was a borderline diabetic we knew we had to change our diets. The only thing was we love cakes and desserts. As a result this fruit loaf was created. We love it and I even make one a week for my dad as he is also a diabetic. (Please note full diabetics should take into consideration their daily intake of fruit when eating this loaf.)

Excellent! I used soya yoghurt, gluten free self raising flour & substituted some of the sultanas with dried cranberrys. Very yummy and nice level of sweetness. Produces a very dark coloured, fruity loaf.


  1. Combine dates, sultanas, baking soda, SPLENDA and water in a saucepan.
  2. Bring to the boil and simmer on a low heat for 5 minutes.
  3. Cool.
  4. Mix together the flour, walnuts, egg and yoghurt and then add the cooled fruit mixture.
  5. Place the mixture in a loaf/bread tin that has been sprayed or coated with light olive oil.
  6. Cook in a moderate oven 160 celcius (fan forced) or 170 (normal).
