    A lovely simple spice cake made moist with prune juice. It's a good coffee cake but it's also very nice to eat a slice of this cake for breakfast.

    This cake tastes great and really is so easy to put together but the directions says to bake in 30 minutes. It was a good thing I was looking out for the cake because it only took 20 minutes to bake.  -  29 May 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    A tasty, moist cake. I followed one reviewer's suggestion and boiled the prunes in prune juice, then strained them and added more juice to make up the 1 cup. My other changes to the recipe were: cutting the sugar by half (you won't miss it)and adding a few tablespoons of cocoa powder. I omitted the clove, nutmeg and allspice for this one. The chocolate prune combination turned out very yummy without being too rich or sweet.  -  08 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    This was a really beautiful cake and was raved about by everyone who tasted it.I cooked it in a 10inch round tin and it took longer than specified (nearly double the time).It has great keeping qualities and stays beautifully moist.  -  17 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
