  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 inch tube pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the shortening and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Mix in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and prunes. Sift the flour, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, baking powder and baking soda into a large bowl or onto a sheet of waxed paper. Stir in the dry ingredients 1/3 at a time, alternating with the buttermilk. Mix in the walnuts if using. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the crown of the cake comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate.

This is a terrific recipe. Super moist and delicious! It makes a lot. I don't have a 9" tube pan, so mine ended up in two 9" round pans, plus the extra in a bread pan. I baked all three at once ...
