1 1/2 cups
2 (4 ounce) jars
plum baby food
This recipe is great! I usually use one vanilla custard and one pear babyfood jars. The custard keeps it really moist, similar to what yogurt would do. Not very sweet so I drizzled lightly with a powdered sugar icing. Last time I tossed in some chopped pecans for added texture. People at work rave about it!
Delicious cake - recipe similar to one from my childhood. Baked it at 350 degrees b/c & thought the posted temp was a typo. I couldn't find plum baby food, so I substituted prune - worked great! I used 1/2 cup applesauce b/c that's what it came in (individual serving size) and reduced the oil to 1/2 cup. Also used pecans b/c my husband's allergic to walnuts. Very moist.
I cooked it at 350 (by mistake) and it took 55 minutes. I used mixed fruit and prune baby foods, because that was what I had. This is a quick work-day dessert that goes together quickly and can bake during dinner or dinner prep. I suspect any fruit baby food would work. The texture was okay (not as dense as I expected) and the fruit made it moist. Great with whipped cream, ice cream, or a drizzle of icing. Frosting would be too much, IMO. This is quite a sweet cake. Next time I will reduce the sugar by at least half, but I will certainly be making it again. Once we no longer keep baby food in the pantry, I'll sub frozen fruit (thawed) with a splash of water and run through the food processor or blender...or just increase the applesauce. Thanks for the recipe.
I used 2 jars of mixed fruit and used chunky homemade applesauce. the cake had a good flavor but was a little dry. I think next time I am going to have to try the vanilla custard suggestion by "luvcooking4others" and see if that will work.
The author forgot to list how much salt in the ingredients list, but mentioned salt in the recipe instructions. Just to be safe, I added 1/2 teaspoon.
