Moist, flavorful and simply scrumptious, this old-fashioned cake was one of my mom's best desserts. Top it with confectioners' sugar or frosting for a sweet treat sure to win raves. -Gina Mueller, Converse, Texas


  • 1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon each ground allspice, cloves and nutmeg
  • 1 cup prune juice
  • 1 cup finely chopped pitted dried plums (prunes)
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional


  1. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture alternately with prune juice, beating well after each addition. Stir in prunes.
  2. Pour into a greased 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar if desired.
