WE have enjoyed this recipe for many years. It was given to me by a college friend. It looks like a standard fruit cake, but the rich, moist texture of apples, dates, raisins and nuts makes it a very satisfying dessert. A slice of this cake, topped with whipped cream, whipped topping or a big scoop of ice cream will have your guests coming back for more.
