Everybody's Favourite

Updated: Mar 30

This is a very old recipe that my mother used to make often. We lived on a sugar cane farm and visitors often arrived unannounced in the days before mobile phones and the internet.

She had a few recipes that she could throw together quickly and have it baked in half an hour.

I have no idea what its real name ever was but, it got its name because, it literally was, "everybody's favourite"

It can be made quickly...it doesn't need to be beaten, cooks quickly and will keep for a week .... if it ever lasts that long.

You can use any dried fruit that is a favourite with your family, dried apricots, cranberries, dried apple or chopped dates.
