Yes NOT cup but cups.
The skill is in the measuring & quantities created.
I cup dark brown sugar or I have interchanged with some honey, less sugar with extra 'dry' of something else. Or raw sugar if it's what youv'e got on the shelf.
1 cup liquid - juice, milk or soy/rice milk for vegan
I cup dried fruit
1 cup nuts
1 cup flour -SR brown
1 cup coconut shredded or dessicated, whatever you have, half and half
1 cup unprocessed bran but has been interchanged with oats or whatever is in cupboard.
So, it is 7 cups. I fruit, 1 nuts , then 5 others make the basis for the cake, 1 being liquid.
Date & pecan is an all time favourite. Apricot & almond works well. In share houses I lived in we were famous once for our instant cake skills. Muesli in the cupboard with sultanas and bran and other cereal and the carton of soy milk ends wth some mashed banana all become one very yummy cake if you get the quantity right.
Sliced apple, cherries, pears, any fruit in season mixed with the right accompanying nut! Have also tried maple syrup, orange juice for the liquid is nice, any dry cereal instead of the bran also. I liked incoorporating seeds into it eg hulled sunflower or sesame. Brazil nuts are surprisingly nice cooked.
Try sprinkling some brown sugar on the top before it goes in the oven or layering slices of banana on the top.
40 mins in oven in a loaf tin.
Enjoy with some tea and a bit of butter or not or a spread or honey or...
