This cake is most, delicious, and it has a perfect texture. You can top it with powdered sugar or icing, if you like. We don't think it needs anything else.

Have made a few prune cakes before, & this one is right up there with the rest of them ~ VERY, VERY NICE! It went together very easily, & when the cake was cooled, I only dusted half of it with powdered sugar! Although the sugared portion was very good, I really liked it just plain! Thanks for sharing!
