Prune Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe is definitely from the South. We had a friend who used to make our family a prune cake every Christmas. When I make this cake, I always talk my father into cracking the walnuts out of the hulls for me. We pick up the walnuts in the fall and use them all winter long...the trees are everywhere! We have a 12-acre farm and are building a cabin on it.
