Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease 3 - 1 lb loaf tins and line them with parchment.
Beat eggs, salt and vanilla together until very light and lemon coloured. Stir in sugar, 125g flour and baking powder.
Place cherries, nuts and dates into a large bowl. Dust with the remaining flour. Then stir in sugar mixture. There is very little batter which makes this a very stiff mixture. Mix with hands.
Press mixture into prepared loaf tins. Bake for 1 hour.
