Basic Fruit Cake Recipe

This recipe is amazing- it is a delicious low fat low sugar cake sweetened only with dates, apples and bananas. For this cake I added strawberries just because cherries or plums are not in season at the moment. It tastes very good but in combination with plums or cherries is is simply amazing!
