Recipe for Prune Cake

By Elma B.

One of my favorite fruits are prunes; hence, of course, I would be drawn to the sweet, fruity and delicious prune cake. The top two ingredients, which make it out of this world savory, are the prunes and the icing. The cooking tips came from the delightful website: Pioneer Woman! Here is a recipe for a prune cake:

To make the cake, here are its ingredients:

1. 1 cup Prunes
2. 1 cup Sugar
3. 3 whole Eggs
4. 1 cup Canola Oil
5. 1-1/2 cup Flour, Sifted
6. 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
7. 1 teaspoon Nutmeg
8. 1 teaspoon Allspice
9. 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
10. 1 cup Buttermilk
11. 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Additionally, I would advise that you prepare the icing: 

1. 1 cup Sugar
2. 1/2 cup Buttermilk
3. 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
4. 1 Tablespoon White Corn Syrup
5. 1/4 cup Butter
6. 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

Preparation Instructions

The Prunes

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Put the prunes in a small pot filled with water. Bring the water to a boil, and let the prunes sit in the water until they are soft, which should take about about eight minutes. Remove the prunes from the hot water and mash the soft prunes on a plate.  

Mixing Ingredients 

Mix together oil, sugar, and eggs ("wet ingredients"). Then, mix together flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice ("dry ingredients"); stir together gently the wet and dry ingredients. Then, add buttermilk and vanilla; stir gently. Afterwards, add the mashed prunes and stir GENTLY. 


Pour everything into a buttered baking dish; bake for 35 to 40 minutes. 


Five minutes before pulling out the cake from the oven, make the icing. Combine all the icing ingredients in a medium sized saucepan, which you would place  on a stove with medium heat and bring to it to a slow boil. Boil for 5 to 7 minutes without stirring or until icing starts to turn dark, i..e caramel in color but not sticky like caramel so that it is easily pourable. 

Remove the cake from the oven and pour the icing immidately. Let the cake rest on the counter, and it is best when served warm.
