Fantastic fruit loaf recipe

Very moist. Sweet. I used pineapple juice instead of apple juice. Was cooked in 50 mins. Delicious.

That sounds great.
I've printed it off & thanks.

Thanks for sharing agave1, I will give this a go but think I will try soaking the dates in water and then use that instead of the juice, just trying to limit the amount if sugar.

That is in the Aunt Daisy cookbook. haven't made it for years as I forgot about it then saw it in the Herald the other day. it really is good.

Nauru. Did you give it a go with the water?

Just made this with Edmonds GF self raising flour, boiled dates and sultanas just in water, but when batter was mixed, decided it needed a little sugar, so added just 1/2 c of brown sugar. Large loaf cooked in 50 mins, delicious. Beautifully moist. With no butter in the recipe, didn't feel too guilty putting butter on a slice of it.

This would make a lovely desert hot, with custard the family thinks lol

Sorry agave, I haven't gotten around to trying it yet. Will let you know.

Bumping, had every intention of making this tonight, got sidetracked doing boring housework. Have boiled my fruit and cooked my pumpkin though.

Made this today, but I feel it needs a little something else to give it more flavour. Maybe a little cinnamon. Recipe is very easy.

Its going to be a regular here, yummy!

Another to try! 3 Weetbix, 1 1/2c Dried Fruit (what U like), 3/4c Sugar & 1 1/4c Milk - into bowl, plate over it & leave overnight. Next day stir in 1 1/2c SR Flour, Vanilla Essence. I add some Spice if I feel like it. Mix up - quite gluggy. Add some more milk if U think it's needed. Put in greased loaf tin. Bake 350F 1 hour. Yummy doesn't last long!
