      10 stars !! I exchanged to prunes here for dates then followed the recipe exactly as written - what a moist and delicious cake. Now I can't wait to do it with prunes !!

      I've had chocolate cake made with prunes before so was pretty confident that this would turn out well, & it certainly did ~ Absolutely wonderful, & I'll be making it again, for sure! I did jazz it up a bit with some homemade chocolate roses from another recipe I'd tagged, but they were small ones & I thought went well with the drizzle of raspberry jam! Thanks for sharing your great recipe ~ It's a keeper, for sure! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      I was quite nervous about this cake, not only because of the awful childhood memories of prunes and cold custard, but also I was unsure the method of just mixing everything together would work.
      But I was very pleasantly surprised; I used gf flour mix instead of flour and the only change I had to make for that was to continuue cooking for an extra 10 mins. I decided against the jam and just simply dredged it with Icing sugar instead. It was delicious, very rich and thankfully no overpowering prune flavour. I will make this again and next time I will serve with creme fraiche as a dessert.
