This is a very fruit and nut rich cake that is held together with only the slightest cake mixture. I cut the slices very thin with a sharp knife and find them very appealing with all the cross-sections of fruit.


Serves: 30 

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 pinch salt, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 500g red glace cherries
  • 500g green glace cherries
  • 500g Brazil nuts
  • 500g walnut halves
  • 500g pecan halves
  • 1kg pitted dates

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour15min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease 10x20cm loaf tins and line them with baking paper.
  2. Beat eggs, salt and vanilla together until very light and lemon coloured. Stir in sugar, 1 cup flour and baking powder.
  3. Place cherries, nuts and dates into a large bowl. Dust with the remaining 1/2 cup flour. Stir in sugar mixture. There is very little batter which makes this a very stiff mixture. Mix with hands.
  4. Press batter into prepared loaf tins. Bake for 1 hour.
