Recipe by GA Hole In 1 GAL
"This was the cake I asked my mother to bake me for my birthday each year. Most people would turn up their noses at any food with prunes in it, but oh are they wrong! This cake is wonderful. When my mother had to go to the nursing home, I found her recipe written in the back of an old cookbook. I was so excited and have been baking it ever since. In fact, then I started making it for her. By the way, I lost my Little Mama when she was 95 years old. She was a wonderful cook and passed it down to me."

Georgia Lady, I grew up making this, also. It is so moist and rich. If you try it, you will enjoy and possibly fall in love with it!
I also made one similar to it with drained canned purple plums. It was so moist it was almost a pudding. I won a blue ribbon with this at the fair.
The fact that it says "prune" makes people shun it. If you just call them plums, the think it is amazing! And they are correct. Thanks for sharing a truly tasty treat. I hope people will try it.
I baked this cake exactly like the recipe and it turned out very dense didn't rise at all. Made some changes by adding 1tsp baking powder , a stick of butter and a total of 3 eggs also 1 3/4 cups buttermilk. The cake came out perfect fluffy moist. With the few changes I'll be making every year at the holidays!
We all really enjoyed this! Even my 3 wee ones!! Made exactly as written! Will def make again!
My mom made this cake also..but she poured the icing over it hot in the tube pan and let it soak into the cake..it really made a difference.. Thank you for the memory and recipe
Great cake, brings back childhood memories! I made it in a regular cake pan and doubled the prunes. I didn't have buttermilk so I used 2% and added a couple tbsp of butter. I drizzled a piece of it with raspberry sauce and white chocolate sauce. Then ate my next piece plain. Both were great!
