DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 300 F and grease a 9 x 13 in baking pan.
  • Place prunes in small saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil; cook until soft and mashable (about 8 min).
  • Drain water and mash prunes (ok to leave some chunks behind), set aside.
  • For cake, mix together flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice.
  • In separate bowl, mix together sugar, eggs, oil, and vanilla.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients and splash in buttermild.
  • Stir until just combined (will be slightly lumpy).
  • Add mashed prunes.
  • Pour into baking pan and bake at 300 F for 35 to 40 minute.
  • When cake has about 5 min left to bake, make icing: combine butter, baking soda, corn syrup, and vanilla in medium saucepan and stir to combine.
  • Bring to a slow boil over med-high heat.
  • Continue boiling until it turns a light caramel color (5-7 min) -- should be pourable but not firm and sticky.
  • Pull cake out of oven.
  • While cake is still warm, pour icing evenly over top -- work fast, it will soak into cake quickly.
  • Spread to coat evenly and serve immediately.
