Good ol' fashioned Fruit Loaf
Original recipe also had 1 tsp ginger added but was too spicy for my liking.. was a bit like gingerbread flavor
I find my loaf always sinks in the middle so could be better if made in smaller loaf tins.
This makes a nice dense loaf, a lot like my mother's recipe

How to Make Good ol' fashioned Fruit Loaf
- Combine sugar, butter, fruit mix, dates, golden syrup and water. Bring to boil and simmer 5 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes.
- Stir in spice, vanilla and salt. Sift in flour, baking soda and baking powder. Mix to combine.
- Pour into prepared/lined loaf tin and bake at 170C (180 in my panasonic) for 1 hour or until skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool in tin 15 minutes and try to keep for a day before eating as it improves with age.
