Plum cake recipe using baby food

prune cake, prune cake with buttermilk icing, dried plum cake

Prune cake with buttermilk icing is moist and easy. Prunes, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg make this the best prune cake with a delicious buttermilk glaze.

Yes, Prune Cake! This cake is moist, delicious and easy; something I’ve been wanting to make for awhile. How can you go wrong with the perfect combination of nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon?

The cake looks so unassuming, but the flavor is melt-in-your-mouth delicious. This Prune Cake is at its peak served nice and warm right as it’s finished. If you want to make this simple, flavorful cake ahead of time, warming the entire cake in the oven or individual slices in the microwave will give you the same results as fresh out of the oven. The name may have some people too skeptical to try it. “Prune Cake?”. “Yes, trust me!”…Maybe just tell them it’s Dried Plum Cake.

For the cake:
  • 1 cup Prunes
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 3 large Eggs
  • 1 cup light Olive Oil or cooking oil of your choice
  • 1 ½ cup All Purpose Flour sifted or stir with whisk
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspon Nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon Allspice
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
For the Icing:
  • 1 cup plus 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Water
  • ½ cup Buttermilk
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ cup Butter
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Butter a 9 x 13 inch baking dish and set aside.

  • Place prunes in medium sauce pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until soft, approximately 8 minutes. Remove from heat, drain water, and mash on a plate. Set aside.

  • Combine oil, sugar, and eggs. In a separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Combine wet and dry ingredients, add buttermilk and vanilla and stir gently until just combined. Add mashed prunes and stir gently Pour batter into buttered baking dish and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.

  • When cake has five minutes remaining, make the icing: Combine all icing ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat and bring to a slow boil. Boil without stirring for 5 to 7 minutes, or until icing starts to turn dark. Do NOT allow icing to reach soft ball stage; icing should be caramel in color, but not sticky like caramel. Icing should pour easily.

  • Remove cake from oven and pour on icing immediately. Allow to rest on the counter. Serve warm.

  • If you are not able to serve immediately, you can reheat the entire cake in a 200 degree oven for approximately 5 minutes. Individual slices reheat in microwave for 10 seconds.

    Straydel with cottage cheese

    so that the stripe turned out to be puffed do not roll out the dough too thin. You can put a little less cottage cheese, and it’s also good to add a couple of tablespoons of grated cheese to the filling - the taste will be brighter!

    Blackberry Nut Muffins

    It is important to mix dry and wet ingredients separately. The dough should not be kneaded for a long time, otherwise the muffins inside will be dense and will not turn out airy. Berries can be used any, fresh or

    Tartlets with pumpkin and feta

    Be sure to use a well-sharpened knife to cut pumpkin, so the plates will turn out thin and neat. Sugar is better to use brown, and cinnamon can be replaced with cardamom.

    Thanks for the recipe to Irina, author of the blog "Notes on Kitchen Curtains".

    Legend has it that every year since 1983, The New York Times has published a recipe for plum pie, yielding to the pleas of American housewives. In 1995, the editors announced the last publication of the recipe, suggesting it as an ultimatum to cut it out, laminate it and hang it on the refrigerator :-)

    The pie is incredibly easy to make and very tasty! 9 42 g
