About this recipe: This fruity loaf cake is filled with dried figs, dates and walnuts and is perfect to make for a food gift, or to keep for yourself!
Instead of adding 60 grams of wallnuts we added 25 grams of pumpkin seeds which worked out to be delicious but the idea is great and we still loved the origional recipe. The butter doesn't always melt in the fifteen minutes but that might just be our bad luck - 15 Jan 2017
We really like this recipe, figs and dates are interchangeable depending on how much you have of each. I am repeatedly asked for this recipe. It's great. Thanks - 21 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I replaced the figs with dates and used the bread to make tea sandwiches for a bridal shower- thinly sliced and spread with 8oz cream cheese mixed with 1/2c chop walnuts and 1/2c chop raisins. So good I had to email the recipe to several people. - 29 Sep 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
