Everyone was baking this cake in the 70s! Virginia Schimmel, my senior English teacher, my inspiration for becoming an English teacher, and later my mentor at Woodham High School in Pensacola, gave it to me. Not only is it delicious, but it's very special because of the person who shared it with me.

1 c
sifted confectioners' sugar
enough lemon juice to make a "drizzle"

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sift together flour, sugar, cinnamon, and cloves.
2
Add oil, vanilla, eggs, and plums. Beat until thoroughly mixed.
3

SANDY'S NOTE": I've had a hard time finding baby food plums lately. Apples and Blueberries will probably work just as well. Just anything with a purple color, but I don't know how well prunes will do.
