Prune Cake Recipe

Getting sufficient amounts of fiber into the diet isn’t always easy but it’s vital for well-rounded digestive health. Fiber-based snacks are a healthy choice for ensuring adequate amounts of insoluble fiber is consumed daily.

Prune Cake Recipe

However, creating tasty food choices that are rich in fiber can be a little more tricky. Hopefully, the prune cake recipes listed below may help you obtain a tastier method of consuming the recommended amount of fiber. Cooking foods rich in fiber and flavor will also encourage your family to eat better, and this will help form occasional stints of nutritious eating into an ingrained, lifelong habit.

Prunes are very rich in fiber, nutrients, and antioxidants and can be easily combined into several delicious dishes. Rather than just choking down enormous bowls of raw prunes or guzzling prune juice by the gallon, try the following prune cake recipes that have been passed down for generations:

Prune Cake Recipe (Simple)

This is a simple prune cake recipe that your family is guaranteed to love!
  • 3 Eggs
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ¼ cup of Sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. Allspice
  • 1 cup of Olive Oil

In our first prune cake recipe, we’ll start by blending sugar and oil. Add eggs and beat well. Sift the dry ingredients together while adding the buttermilk after each addition. Add the nuts, prunes, and vanilla extract. Stir to distribute these items well throughout the batter. Pour the batter into a greased and floured 13” long x 9” wide x 2” deep pan. Bake at 350° F. for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the cake tests done. While the prune cake is baking, prepare the following sauce and pour it over the cake while it is still a little hot. Leave the cake in the pan to cool completely before eating.

Making The Sauce For Your Prune Cake

  • 2 tbsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup of Rapdura Cane Sugar
  • ¼ to ½ cup of Butter or Coconut Oil

Combine all of the above ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to boil for one minute. Pour immediately over your prune cake it’s still hot from the oven. Let it cool completely before serving.

Prune Cake Recipe (Complex)

This second prune cake recipe is a little more complex to make, but the end results are definitely worth the extra work!
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tbsp. Nutmeg
  • 3 tbsp. Baking Powder
  • ¼ tbsp. Baking Soda
  • 2 tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 2/3 cups of Prune Juice
  • 1 tbsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 cup of Chopped Walnuts
  • 2 cups of Whole Grain Flour
  • ½ cup Shortening or Coconut Oil
  • 1 cup of Cane Sugar or Molasses
  • 1 cup of Chopped, Cooked Prunes
In this prune cake recipe, we’ll start by mixing the shortening, in a large bowl, while gradually beating in the sugar until it’s light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs by beating well as you add each one. In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, soda, and spices.

Add the powder mixture to the liquid one while alternately adding the prune and lemon juices. Beat until the entire batter is smooth. Stir in the prunes and nuts. Pour it all into two greased and floured 8-inch round cake pans. Bake at 375° F. oven for about 30 to 40 minutes or until the cake is springy to the touch. Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool in the pans for 5 minutes. Flip the cakes out onto racks or boards to cool completely before serving. Decorate with a low-fat, low-sugar frost if you like and enjoy!
