NOTE: You can substitute ⅓ cup commercially prepared pureed prunebaby food of prune butter(found in jam & jelly of baking section of your supermarket for the prune puree) the baby food prune jars you will need 2 2/2 oz jars and the prune butter will add extra cal sue to the added sugars in the mixture.
