    I said I wouldn't like it because I generally don't like dried fruit but in truth I''ve never had it. I love Lardy Cake though - is it anything like that?

    It's a bit like that, with spices, but not made with lard. It's spiced dried fruit, but they're not dry because you soak the fruit in a pint of tea for 24 hours before making it. It's a sweet bread rather than a malted loaf.

    LOL @ Lardy cake. How can something sound so gross but taste so good? My granny used to feed me lardy cake with butter on it. No wonder I was such a fat child LOL

    It sounds like fruit loaf and I love that, I'll have to look out for it.
    Do you spread anything on it? I usually have butter on fruit loaf but on it's own is good too.

    I'm the same, but Lardy Cake is special - I love it despite the fruit.
