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??

How To Make gluten-free, dairy-free old fashioned prune cake

  • 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.
