Pineapple crush is quite difficult to source nowadays, I used a tin of value pineapple as it tends to have smaller pieces. It is very adaptable. You can vary the dried fruit, I substituted glacé cherries and chopped dried apricots for some of the conventional dried fruit. My daughter is a Vegan so I used egg substitute. An every day cut and come again cake. Good with a cuppa. It makes a very moist cake.
