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.
You can add vanilla extract or use different fruit, or add cherries. However, I think thebasic recipe is simple to make & best.
As an erstwhile chef, I question the name, PLUM BREAD, when the ingredients call for MIXED FRUIT. that's all folks. 'nuf sed. plamuk aka travellingchef - 27 Sep 2012
