We just can't stop eating this! It's so moist and delicious. With coffee at midmorning, it's a snack. Would be great for kids with a glass of milk. On a plate with whipped topping after dinner, it's a dessert. It's also great in the lunchbox. My only change was to use 1/4 cup molasses and 1/4 cup cane syrup. Next time I might add a dash of cloves. The nuts and golden raisins are essential, and I might also add some chopped dates.

This was the 2nd recipe I tried and was the better of the two. It has a nice mild flavor and was fairly moist (even with the wheat flour). I also added applesauce (since I did not have the prune baby food on hand) and roughly 1/4 tsp of orange flavor. It was pretty tasty! Oh,and it only needed ~53 minutes oven time, as opposed to 60min--so watch it closely so it doesnot turn out dry..
