PRUNE CAKE

Photobucket

Do you want a healthy and easy recipe that only takes about 10 minutes to prepare? This cake uses prune as one of the ingredients and not overly sweet. One great thing about prunes however they are good for you. Prunes are dehydrated plum come from sweetest and flavorful plums.

Having long holiday due to Chinese New Year so bake this eggless cake to be enjoyed by my family. It is so moist and received compliments from my sons definitely would bake it again. Due to shortage of prunes have added some raisin to the batter.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup pitted prunes chopped
1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
extra prune to sprinkle on top

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven @ 180 C. Grease 7 inches round cake pan.

2. Sift flour and baking powder, add sugar and prune. Mix well.

3. Combine together butter, milk, orange juice and vanilla essence until well blended.

4. Pour butter mixture onto flour, mix until well incoporated.

5. Transfer this mixture into a greased pan, sprinkle the prune on top and bake for 25-30 minutes or a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

6. Cool on rack.
