Summary: This rich fruit cake is just unbelievable : it it made without eggs, butter or margarine or oil, and added sugar, yet it tastes just as delicious and decadent as you would expect any good Christmas cake to.
The magic trick here is to replace the butter-sugar-egg mixture with dates blended with water. Using wholemeal flour further increases the fibre content, making this Christmas cake healthier.
I used mixed vine fruit with peel, but the peel does contain sugar. To keep it really sugar free, stick to mixed vine fruit : sultanas, raisins and currants, and be sure to choose those with no added sugar.
Also, I chose to decorate the cake with some home-made, low sugar vegan marzipan on the top, but beware that this would also increase the sugar content, unless you make your marzipan with xylitol.
