Why I Love This Recipe

This cake needs no frosting; a dusting of powdered sugar is sufficient.

When dissolving baking soda in coffee: use larger than 1-cup measure to dissolve it in, because the baking soda foams up.

It's called a 7-day cake because it will keep for 7 days.


Ingredients You'll Need

2 C cooked prunes - pitted (if not using electric mixer, chopped)
1-1/2 C granulated sugar
3/4 C shortening
3 eggs, beaten
2-3/4 C sifted flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp mace
1 tsp cinnamon
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 C boiling coffee


Directions

Cream sugar and shortening.


Add beaten eggs, then prunes.


Add flour sifted with salt, spices and 1/2 tsp baking soda.


Dissolve remaining 1 tsp of soda in boiling coffee


Add coffee-soda mixture to batter


Pour batter into three 9” layer pans


Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes (if made in large loaf pan, bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes).
