In Australia, we happen to have sultanas AND raisins. And they are DIFFERENT.

Jan, your so right, this hast to be the quickest loaf that I have ever made. I used Splenda for the sugar, a scant 1/2 cup of a non-hydrogenated margarine and went with just the apricots and currents to trim back on the sugars the sultanas would have added. It was still fruity and delicious. What a treat to go with afternoon coffee! It could also be used as a very quick guest pleaser over the holidays.

So quick and easy to put together. I used currants and pre diced apricots and it was in the pan in no time at all, I also used Hermesetas in place of the sugar and Logical margarine for the butter. The DM just loves this sweet treat which I also had a taste of and found it to be beautifully moist though a little sweet for my taste but as said it was made for the DM, thanks Jan for a great little recipes.
