I am going to show you some of the magic. Because it is magic. It’s a very low fat fruit cake that is so easy to make the you will immediately be able to memorise the recipe forever.

Just to echo what I said over on Josh's blog: if you make it with soya milk, it's vegan. Delicious, I agree.

I've been wondering if it would work without the dried fruit (which I hate, unfortunately). Might be a bit boring, though. Hmmm... maybe walnut pieces...?

Definitely.

Add any fruit you actually do like, maybe dried apple, cherries or apricots, yes. Coconut makes another good addition, and the date+walnut killer combo is good. Heck, you can make it with maltezers if you want.

Thing is, the dried fruit is what makes it moist & chewy so if you're leaving it out altogether, put in an extra slug of milk and a tbsp more sugar.

The fruit doesn't even have to be dried. I've had success with rough chunks of banana, for instance. I even added chocolate chips once.

Once you've got all bran, milk, sr four and a dash of sugar you can add pretty much anything.

Oh and I'd echo the 'add a dash of extra milk' thing. It works best if it's quite, erm, sloppy.

Banana = \:D/ Daz won't like it though.

Hmmm... banana it is, then. ;))

Go a bit easy on the milk if you include banana bits. If it's too sloppy they all fall to the bottom.

Fresh cranberries (aldi) work well. As do apricots.

Sod it, just look at your fruit bowl.

Our fruit bowl has a layer of dust and some old receipts in it.
