Looking for a way to use up some prunes and half a bottle of prune juice, I came across this recipe. I made this, not expecting to like it. Prunes are not a favorite of mine, but I didn't want to waste them. I made this deliciously moist spice cake and didn't tell anyone what the ingredients were. When the recipes states; 1 cup prunes, cooked and chopped, I cooked them in 1 cup of the prune juice for about 15 minutes at medium heat. The liquid had cooked out and the prunes were nice and soft. I then continued with the recipe. I poured this in a bundt pan and baked for 30 minutes. I let rest in the pan for 5 minutes; then flipped the pan. I took half a cake into school to have people try it. EVERYONE loved it and could not believe it when I told them what the 2 ingredients were. I would make this again, but not tell people what type of cake it was until after they ate it. The word "prunes" is a turn-off to a lot of people, including myself. I frosted this with 'Maple Butter Frosting' another AR recipe. This is a keeper; just remember to keep the ingredients to yourself until after everyone tries it.
