    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.

      Preheat oven to 350 F.

      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.

      *Note on stewing prunes: Wash prunes and place in a saucepan with several lemon or orange slices; cover with cold water.
    7. 7
      Bring to a boil and boil briskly for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
    8. 8
      Sweeten to taste by adding up to 1/4 cup of sugar for every 1 cup of prunes in the last 5 minutes of cooking.

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