Eggless Brandy Prune Cake

Lately I have been so tempted to bake cakes, today's cake I baked for our potluck party at office tomorrow, which have been requested by my best friend Hanan. He asked me to add Brandy to the cake, I have never tried baking any cake with rum or brandy before. So for that I have altered my previous Egg-less Prune Cake accordingly, click here for step by step pictorial.

Let's look at the recipe now;


1 cup of mashed prune
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of canola oil
1 tsp allspice powder
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp nutmeg powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup of Brandy
A pinch of salt
1 cup of water (save water from prune boiling)

Sift flour, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg powder and baking soda, set aside. Add 1 tbsp of Brandy to mashed prune and let it marinate for 30 minutes.

In a mixing bowl, pour oil add sugar mix well then fold in the dry ingredients. Add vanilla extract and salt, now add the mashed prune mix well. Finally add in the water with balance 1 tbsp of Brandy mix well and pour the batter in baking pan and bake at 150 degree for 40 minutes. 

The temperature and baking time depends on the size of your baking pan and most importantly your oven, I have used 8 inches baking pan. Revert the cake on a cooling rack and cut into desired size an d now our Egg-less Brandy prune Cake is ready to be served.

Do try this recipe and let me know if you like it.
