DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Sift flour; measure; add baking powder, soda, cinnamon, salt and sugar; sift again, add whole wheat flour and mix thoroughly.
  • 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.
  • Do not beat.
  • Turn into a greased loaf pan (about 9-1/2"x5-1/2") and bake for about an hour, until a knife comes out clean when inserted in the middle.
  • *Note on stewing prunes: Wash prunes and place in a saucepan with several lemon or orange slices; cover with cold water.
  • Bring to a boil and boil briskly for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • 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.
