English Fruit Cake?

KAUAI GIRL | Dec 17, 201807:18 AM     15

While visiting England in October, we took the train to Cardiff. In the first cabin, we were given some snacks for breakfast, and one seemed to be a fruit cake bar. It was dense and brown, not at all dry, and had bits of fruit in it.

Seems like fruit cake, but certainly not the neon-colored dried fruit and dry sponge we make fun of here in the US.

Does this sound familiar? Any idea what it is called? And, the big ask, any idea of a great recipe for same?

Thanks in advance from the great Pacific Northwest!
