I got the basic recipe for this from the Pioneer Woman. I re-created it into a gluten-free dairy-free version of her delicious cake. (I confess to a couple of other "tweaks" as well:))My whole family really enjoyed it and these are people who would never have touched it had I actually CALLED it "prune cake". What they don't know can't hurt them, right??

Ingredients

1 c
prunes
1/2 c
sugar(i used sucanat)
1/2 c
honey
1 c
oil(i used light olive oil-could also use melted butter)
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
oat flour(easily make your own by grinding oats in blender or food processor)
1/2 c
brown rice flour(or favorite gf flour)
1 tsp
baking soda
2 tsp
cinammon
1 c
soured non-dairy milk-i used almond milk(could also use buttermilk)**

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 300F(yes, that low). Grease a 9x13 baking dish.
2
Place the prunes in a small saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until soft...about 8 min. Drain the water and mash the prunes. You can just mash them up with a fork, or you can puree them, as I did. Set aside.
3
Thoroughly combine the honey, sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla.
4
In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
5
Add the wet to the dry, along with the buttermilk and stir just enough to combine.(don't overmix)
6
Pour batter into the pan and bake for 35-40 min. Watch carefully toward the end so as to not overbake.
7
Top with your choice of glaze, powdered sugar, or sweetened whipped cream.
8
**To make soured milk, put 1T of lemon juice or vinegar in a measuring cup and add your non-dairy milk to the 1c line.
