Spiced prune cake

Yield: 12 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Self-rising flour
2 cups Sugar
1 cup Cooking Oil (I use Mazola)
3 \N Eggs
1 \N Jr (Lg) food/regular prunes (Baby Food section )
1 teaspoon Each: Cinnamon; Nutmeg, Allspice
1 cup Chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 D., grease & flour large tube pan/bundt (for prettier cake) In large bowl mix sugar oil & eggs & beat until light & fluffy. Add flour in ⅓'s with the prunes. Add spice & beat well. Fold in chopped pecans. Pour batter into pan & bake until a tooth pick in center comes out clean (about 45 mins. to 1 Hour). Cool in pan inverted on plate for about fifteen min.. remove pan & glaze cake with the following. Cake should be warm when glazed.

Glaze: 2 c 10XX sugar & lemon juice to make a medium paste. Brush onto cake, covering entire surface. Will form donut- like glaze. This glazed delicious cake sells well at bazaars, raffles & other functions & has been stolen from my kitchen on more than on occassion. Makes a nice center piece decorated with holly leaves & berries during the holidays.
