This is a very long recipe, but well worth the trouble. You can substitute a cup of drained maraschino cherries for the glace cherries, if you like.
I 1/3 the recipe and baked the cake for 2 and a half hours.The cake is moist and has a nice flavour. I didn't like dates so i replaced them with cashewnuts instead. I didn't change anything else. Good recipe. - 19 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
