Delish guilt-free(ish) fruit loaf. No oil, no butter - just a bit of egg, making for almost no fat per serving. Nicely sliced and spread with - dare I say it? Butter! :)

This is a lower calorie tea cake that does not compromise on flavour. Buttermilk guarantees it will turn out moist. Great for an afternoon snack.
