Egg-Less Prune Cake

I'm so obsessed of prune and making Prune Cake, once I tried making this cake, I coudn't resist the flavour of the cake loaded with prunes and spices. This time I made it without adding any alcohol in it but I have substituted brandy for fruit flavoured essence. Anyone who tried this cake will never say NO to it, you will definitely love the taste of it. Now let's get to the recipe;


Ingredients:
1 cup of prunes
1/2 cup of sugar
1 cup of canola oil
11/2 cup of flour*
1 tsp baking soda*
1 tsp nutmeg powder*
1 tsp allspice powder*
1 tsp cinnamon powder*
1 cup of prune flavored yogurt
1 cup of hot boiling water
1 tsp vanilla essence




Boil the prunes for about 10 minutes to soften the prunes
for easy mashing moment


Drain the water and mash the cooked prunes with a fork, you don't have to 
mash everything too smooth, do leave some chunks for better texture


In a separate mixing bowl pour oil, sugar and mix well, you don't have to use a mixer to incorporate this cake mixture, using wooden spatula is sufficient. The recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar but I have reduced to half a cup because the prune is sweet and I have added flavored yogurt.


Then sift all the dry ingredients marked * and stir into the sugar and oil mixture


Add mashed prune, prune flavored yogurt and hot boiling water to the cake mixture,
Ree have used buttermilk but I substituted with yogurt and water.



Pour the cake mixture in a 8' buttered cake pan and bake at 150- 170 degree for 30-40 minutes depending on your own oven. Mine I baked at 150 degree for 35 minutes


Our Egg-less Prune Cake is now cooling and can be served once you remove it from the mould. 



Do try and let me know how was it!

  18. Prunes are so high in fibre and other nutrients, and they have that exceptional flavor great for using in cakes, so I can imagine how tasty this will be :-)
