Once again there is proof that we are all different. I did not enjoy this cake, though I rather like prunes. I don't think I over-baked it, but it seems dry to me, and I can detect a faint taste of Coke, which I would prefer not to. I did use dried prunes - moist ones - rather than canned ones. Live and learn, I guess.

This bread is so delicious and fruity and nutty and moist. No one could guess that there was coke in it. A definite hit and a definite keeper
