This was a tasty, thick cake that makes a beautiful presentation. Changes I made were cutting the serving size to 12 and modified that ingredient list to make it a healthier cake--subbed applesauce for oil, used only 1/2 cup sugar (mostly all brown, about 2 tbsp of white) and whole wheat flour. I dusted the pan with flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. The final coat of powdered sugar added a nice sweetness. Note: I'm sure this recipe with the original ingredients is very tasty. These modifications I tried produce a fruit cake that is good for people who don't have a super sweet tooth and prefer healthier ingredients in their desserts. Additional ideas for making the healthier recipe a bit sweeter are adding a dollop of honey or serving warm with butter and preserves.
