This was very moist, not too heavy, just lightly spiced, and very fruity. I followed the recipe as written except I cut the brown sugar to 1 1/2c and it was just sweet enough for my tastes, cause I like tartness. I used a handheld mixer to mix it all up. The batter might not seem like it will cover all the fruit, but it bakes up beautifully. I cooled it for 15 minutes in the pan on a rack, then turned it out to finish cooling. You could easily substitute other fruit or use all one type of fruit. Would easily accept other spice combinations as well. I might try pears and ginger next time.

I actually made a lot of modifications to this recipe because I was afraid it wouldn't be moist enough, sweet enough or spicy enough. So here's what I did: I used 3 eggs, 2 cups of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of regular sugar, 3/4 cup vegetable oil, 1-1/2 tsp. baking soda, and I added the following spices: 1/8 tsp. cloves, 1/2 tsp. ginger, 1/4 t. allspice and 1/2 tsp Chinese 5 spice. I baked it in a tube pan for only 50 minutes. I also used a mixer instead of only hand mixing. I added a brandy glaze made with sugar, butter, half and half and brandy and I sprinkled sugar crystals on it. It was moist and delicious. I took it to a gathering and everyone loved it. The photos above are mine so you can see what it looked like.
