About this recipe:A late friend from London gave me this recipe 30 years ago (her name was Diz - hence the name), and whoever tries this recipe makes it for life. So simple, so tasty - Better than any bought & lasts for weeks. Being as it keeps so well I make 2 at a time - you can also freeze it. I spread with butter (perhaps a slice of cheese) , but fine on its own. Also can warm a slice for a minute in microwave for a quick pudding.

Get large bowl and add butter and sugar. Put in microwave on defrost till completely melted (about 2-3 mins - I do minute at time). Add all other ingredients. Put in greased 900g loaf tin. Cook on 180 C / Gas 4 for 90 minutes or till cooked. In fan I put on 170 C for half hour and 160 C for 1 hour. If it starts to brown on top can cover last half hour with foil. (I keep tablespoon mixer without fruit back & spread over top before cooking - so fruit doesn't catch). DELICIOUS.
You can add vanilla extract or use different fruit, or add cherries. However, I think thebasic recipe is simple to make & best.
