Prune & Pumpkin Cake
I am always looking for new things to make for my morning tea. Recently, I spotted a recipe for a prune and pumpkin cake here on Vicious Ange's site.
When I printed off the recipe, two of my colleagues saw it on the printer and asked me NOT to make it. However, I made it for myself, and boy is it good! It is lovely and sweet and dense because of the mashed pumpkin, and the prunes give it that extra "oomph". I love it.
My only tip is to ensure that you allow the cake to cool fully before eating it. I cut off a slice while the cake was still warm (primarily for photography purposes), and at that stage, the cake tasted like mashed pumpkin and nothing else. However, allow it to cool, and it takes on a life all of its own - the flavours somehow meld and the cake is just gorgeous.
Thanks for the recipe Ange!
