3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Glaze:

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.)
