So Prune Cake. Have you heard of it? I think I’m too young to know of it’s origins but I guess it used to be served at all the weddings a while back? I’ve been wanting to eat prune cake for a long time now and I don’t know why. I visited a craft fair a few weeks back and bought a mini prune cake loaf and it was DELISH. Why am I calling it spice cake? So people don’t run after hearing prunes. Why do prunes get such a bad rap! I really wanted to try to make this on my own to make up for that damn failed mochi donut recipe. I think I succeeded! Come and take a look!
The recipe calls for a cup of prunes. I threw in the whole bag (the bag was 8 oz.) – I can’t help myself. You have to boil the prunes with enough water just to cover them. Boil it for about 8 minutes and drain. Once you have drained the prunes, mash them up with a fork!
When the cake has about five to seven minutes left of baking, start making the glaze. It definitely took a while to get to a nice caramel color. I think I could have cooked it down a bit more…but it might have worked to my advantage!
Cake glazed and ready to consume. I shared this with my coworkers and I got some very positive comments! I honestly think it tastes much better after being chilled in the fridge. Yummmm..I want to make it again.
