prunes, cooked and chopped
This cake tastes great and really is so easy to put together but the directions says to bake in 30 minutes. It was a good thing I was looking out for the cake because it only took 20 minutes to bake.
Sorry I didn't like this at all. Maybe I don't like prunes enough.
This was a really beautiful cake and was raved about by everyone who tasted it.I cooked it in a 10inch round tin and it took longer than specified (nearly double the time).It has great keeping qualities and stays beautifully moist.
A tasty, moist cake. I followed one reviewer's suggestion and boiled the prunes in prune juice, then strained them and added more juice to make up the 1 cup. My other changes to the recipe were: cutting the sugar by half (you won't miss it)and adding a few tablespoons of cocoa powder. I omitted the clove, nutmeg and allspice for this one. The chocolate prune combination turned out very yummy without being too rich or sweet.
I have made this once so far, following the review that suggested subbing 2 tablespoons cocoa for the nutmeg, etc, stewing the prunes in the prune juice, and halving the sugar. This came out delicious. I topped with Cream Cheese Frosting II from this site, but would be fine plain. I was expecting a pumpkin or banana bread type texture but it yields a moist and fluffy cake which calls for topping. This recipe is great for using up prune juice because a whole bottle is hard to finish!
this was delicious and light. too sweet for me though. next time i'll cut the sugar by 1/4 cup and see. i made this with gluten free flours, a straight 1:1 substitution and it's perfect. i boiled the prunes in prune juice, and then topped up what was left to make the 1 cup. nice recipe.
Delicious! But do cut the sugar by half, since the prunes are very sweet already.
I have searched for this recipe for years. My mother used to make it at the holidays and this appears to be exactly it. The only thing I did different was frost it with cream cheese frosting, very moist and tasty cake.
