Made this for my other half to take to work & share with coffee loving co-workers, & it was a big hit with them! Some were surprised that it included prunes, too! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC Tag]

WONDERFUL! You can't tell this soft yummy torte has no fat! I used 1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar blend and topped it with Cool Whip Lite instead of the topping. Made for the Beverage tag game.
