This old-fashioned favourite is proof that you don’t need to invent new recipes in order to eat healthily. Despite being very low in fat it has a lovely light, moist texture, thanks to the dried dates, and makes a pleasant alternative to a conventional fruited cake. It’s delightfully easy to make, and keeps well too.

I made this today and am so pleased with the result! I chopped the walnuts very finely and had to use ginger as had no mixed spice, but it tastes delicious and the texture is lovely. I have a fan oven and it was baked within the hour so keep a close eye on it. Thank you - 01 Apr 2012
