I used to cook this cake. Tonight as my sister and I were shelling pecans she began talking about it. When we were young a neighbor would cook this cake and invite us over, we loved it. Pretty nice to be sitting in front of the fireplace shelling pecans with my sister and reminiscing about favorite memories. So, I thought I would share the recipe with my cooking buddies. I'm really getting cranked up to cook it myyself. It is very GOOD !!!

How to Make PRUNE CAKE WITH BUTTERMILK ICING

Step-by-Step

  1. CAKE: Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F. Combine eggs, oil,and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Mix well. Combine dry ingredients (PUT SPICES IN FLOUR); add to oil mixture alternating with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla, prunes (don't forget to cook first in a little water on low with lid on) and Black walnuts.
  2. Spoon batter into a 9x13x2 inch pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until cake pulls away from sides of pan. Place on rack to cool. Punch holes in top of cake with tooth pick. Spoon Buttermilk icing over cake while still warm. Completely cool, will be more flavorful if cooked two days before serving. Keep covered.
  3. BUTTERMILK ICING:Combine all ingredients except vanilla in a sauce pan. Place on medium heat, bring to a slow boil. On a slow boil cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; add vanilla and beat well. Allow cake to completely cool, cover and keep at room temperature for 2 days before serving. (I always have to sneak a piece while it is still warm) DELICIOUS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
