    Tamarisk's Note:

    I found this recipe on an internet forum - inventer unknown. It is a boiled fruit loaf- super easy, and can all be mixed in the one pot. It is well liked by children and adults, and is nice with butter (not fat free!) Aparently if cut into 15 slices, 1 slice = 1.5 weight watchers points. This is great made with gluten free flour, it is also vegan.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine dates, brown sugar, bicarb soda and water in a pot. Bring to boil, simmer for 1-2 mins (stir a few times) then turn off heat and leave to cool.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius Grease a 22x 11cm tin (or use baking paper).
    3. 3
      Add carrot to date mix (I just grate straight into pot) a 1/2 or whole apple is also nice grated in too (I don't wait until date mix is totally cool).
    4. 4
      Sift flour and spices together and add to mix. (I don't- I just chuck it all into the pot! Saves on dishes).
    5. 5
      Mix well and spoon into loaf tin. You can add extra water if too dry to mix well.
    6. 6
      Bake for 40-50 minutes Use a skewer to check if middle cooked.
    7. 7
      Note- if using gluten free flour (not self raising) add 2- 2.5 teaspoons of baking powder + 1 tsp (optional) of guar gum.

      This very tasty loaf is so easy to put together ~ It takes a little grating, but 1 carrot & 1 apple are quickly grated! I made this in a 9-inch loaf pan & it came out wonderfully moist! We've already had it topped with a homemade orange butter (OUTSTANDING) & also spread with a homemade orange-cranberry cream cheese (ALSO GREAT)! Thank you for a great addition to my keeper list!
