I loved the sound of this cake it sounded lovely and it is lovely. I changed it a wee bit as I am diabetic and wanted to make it more suitable for myself, so I used currants as they are better than the other kinds of fruit, also I used 1/4 cup of vanilla sugar, and 1/4 cup of splenda, and It was just the right sweetness for me. I did use the butter maybe I should of used my margarine but I thought the butter would give it that rich flavour and it did. I will only have a small piece if I can leave it alone so I don't think the butter will do any damage to my diet it had a very nice aroma when it was baking. thank you for posting.
