This cake is kin to a steamed cake or an English Pudding, which is actually a cake. The middle of this cake will fall and get moist and gooey as it cools. If you can time this to serve warm for a large crowd, you will be a hit!. If you wish, you can substitute dates for the prunes. Use about 18 large dates. This cake is a heartwarming Holiday Treat. Happy Holidays!

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 inch springform pan. Line the bottom with parchment. Butter the parchment. Wrap some foil around the bottom of the pan to prevent any spills.
2Place all the cake ingredients, except the flour, in a large bowl. Mix well by hand.
3Add the flour and stir just until mixed. Scrape batter into prepared pan.
4Bake cake until it tests with a pick. 50-55 minutes. Cake will have pulled away from the sides and the middle will have fallen a bit. It will be firm to the touch.
5Cool on a rack for 15-20 minutes. Unmold to a plate. The center will fall some more as it cools.
6Make frosting by mixing butter, milk and powdered sugar until smooth. Frost the cake while warm.
7Serve wedges of cake warm or at room temperature.
