Mixed Fruit Squares


1. Combine dried fruit, raisins, and water in medium saucepan; heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until fruit is tender and water is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add margarine, stirring until melted; cool to room temperature.
2. Mix eggs and vanilla into fruit mixture; mix in combined flour, Equal® , baking soda, salt, and spices. Spread batter evenly in greased baking dish, 11 x 7 x 2-inches; sprinkle with walnuts.
3. Bake in preheated 350°F (175°C) oven until cake springs back when touched lightly, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool on wire rack; cut into squares. Makes 2 dozen squares.
