1 c. chopped dates
3/4 c. chopped pitted prunes
1/2 c. dark raisins
1 1/4 c. water
1 stick (or 1/2 c.) margarine
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 c. all purpose flour
18 packets Splenda
1 t. soda
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. salt (I use light)
1/4 c. chopped nuts

Combine dates, raisins, prunes and water, heat to boiling, reduce heat and simmer uncovered 10 minutes or until fruit is tender and most of the water has been absorbed. Remove from heat, add margarine, stir until melted - cool some. Mash if not cooked down enough.
Mix egg and vanilla.
Sift flour and all other dry ingredients together. Add egg mixture and flour mixture to fruit mixture. Stir together. Spread batter into greased baking dish 11 X 7 X 2 (I use a 9" square). Sprinkle nuts on top and bake 30 to 35 minutes in pre-heated 350 oven. Cool in pan, cut into squares, about 24.
This is very moist. Keep refrigerated. I sometimes substitute apricots for either prunes or dates for variety.
