Plum Cake vs Prune Cake

I remember one of my favourite cooks, Maggie Beer once saying that she learned the importance of a name a long time ago, when she had a delectable prune cake in her restaurant and couldn't work out why it didn't sell...so changed it's name to "plum cake" and then watched it become one of their most popular. Same cake, different name.

It's funny how some people have a "thing" about prunes. Me? I love them...and that's why I really like this cake.

I made it at the weekend for our afternoon tea. It's easy and a little spicy and terrific with a cuppa...You can get the recipe here

Happy baking
