I was given this recipe and enjoyed my first taste of it when it was baked by one of my gorgeous friends. She is always trying new things, and whipping up some delicious cakes and slices. Not only is she a great cook though, she is a truly beautiful person, inside and out. xo
The thing I like most about this cake , is it has no sugar!! Or butter and milk for that matter. Its still super moist but is a healthier take on the traditional fruit cake.
