Prune cake is a delicious coffee cake. Served with warm caramel sauce & black coffee, you would definitely go for other slice.
The recipe of Prune Cake is based on my recipe of Kaikat al Tamar (ie Dates Cake) and from David Lebovitz Prunes Chocolate cake. I can say for sure once you get the taste of this delicious cake, you would definitely want to go for other slice.
We start the process of making with deseeding the prunes and soaking in concoction of coffee, hot water and soda bi carb. Later this is pureed and added with rest of the ingredients. This recipe is very simple and easy to follow. And takes about fifteen minutes of soaking and about 45 minutes of baking time.
It is best to make ahead this cake as it intensifies the flavor of prunes and later warm and serve with a drizzle of caramel and and black coffee or with a generous scoop of ice cream.
