    I have a very similar prune cake recipe and for those who turn up their nose arose at the very idea I think most would have no idea what is in the cake. Mine is baked in a 9×13 inch pan and its very moist. It also includes a buttermilk cooked frosting that is put on the cake as it comes out of the oven making it a sticky candy like treat.

    As a side note–you make me feel very vintage with the remote tale. I remember having no remotes. One had to actually get off the couch to change the channel with a knob selector. I commented when remotes came on the scene that if people were too lazy to change the channel they did not need a TV. We had only two channel TV in my area. NBC and CBS and they signed off the air after the late night news and only a test pattern showed until morning.

    I have a friend that has baked a prune cake every Christmas for about 60 yrs.
    And I can remember when we didn’t even have a TV.
