Ingredients

1-1/2 cups sifted flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cooking oil
1/2 cup cold water
1 jar (4-3/4 oucnes) strained prunes (baby food)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Glaze:
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon light cream or milk

Instructions

In a mixing bowl, stir flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add oil, water, prunes, egg and vanilla. Beat 1 minute at medium speed with electric mixer. Pour batter into greased and floured 9-inch baking pan. Sprinkle nuts on top of batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool in pan. Combine sugar, cinnamon and cream/milk for glaze. Drizzle over cake. (I actually use a little more liquid to make thinner drizzle.)
