Oh my, this really is delicious! I used 2/3 cup cake flour and 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup soft demerara sugar, and 1 whole egg plus one egg white. Overbaked slightly by accident, but the middle bits give me an idea of what the texture would be like had I been paying attention!! Excellent recipe, thank you for sharing!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F (175C). Spray a 9-inch square cake pan and dust with additional cocoa powder and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside. In another bowl combine the prunes, egg whites, vanilla and coffee. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Pour into the prepared cake pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
