“This moist cake was a favorite of mine as a child - probably because it meant I could have cake for breakfast! Moist, spicy and delicious any time of day!”

Original recipe yields 1 - 9 inch tube cake

Directions

  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.

I thought the fat content was too high. Next time, I will try using applesauce instead. This time, I used whole wheat flour and yogurt instead of ap flour and buttermilk. the family enjoyed this!

this is a very good cake moist and the taste is outstanding. I put a glaze on mine yum. My glaze was butter lemon and orange juice sugar and powder sugar did not measure but you should be able to figure it out. I used 1cup of white sugar and a half of a cup of brown sugar and i used a teaspoon of orange extract with the vanilla in the cake batter
