    Stephanie in Pittsburgh's Note:

    This is from the Woman's Home Companion Cook Book, the 1944 edition. It was my grandmother's cookbook. I find it fascinating; it covers everything from wartime rationing to canning what you've grown in your Victory Garden.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 F.

      Sift flour; measure; add baking powder, soda, cinnamon, salt and sugar; sift again, add whole wheat flour and mix thoroughly.
    3. 3
      Combine egg, sour milk or buttermilk, prunes, prune juice and melted shortening or butter; pour into flour mixture and stir just enough to moisten the dry ingredients.

      This is not bad, but it is quite heavy. It's more like a (heavy) cake.
