    Keencook's Note:

    This recipe is really moist with a great flavour. Because of the natural sugars in fruit it is naturally sweetened. I have used this cake for all special occasions and everyone just loves it. Especially when they find out there is no added sugar or fat!

      Very flavorful and moist- a nice change from all of the super sweet things around our house these holidays. I wasn't sure what wholemeal flour was- so I used whole wheat flour and allspice instead of mixed spice. Also, 160c converted to 320f. Thanks for sharing this wonderful "healthy" cake- I even had some for breakfast with my coffee.
