Val's brummie fruit loaf

    1 hour 45 min

    Got this one off my mum in exchange for the recipe for bara brith - she used to make it when we were kids. Despite using syrup, it is fatless, so it's sort of good for you.

    Lovely moist cake, although the outside went very chewy. Will make again  -  04 Nov 2014
