Ingredients
  • CAKE:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cup seedless prunes, cut in quarters
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 by 13-inch baking pan. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Stir in the oil, buttermilk, and vanilla. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the prunes and nuts. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes up clean.

Meanwhile, combine all the topping ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer, stirring for 3 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven and place it on a rack to cool slightly. Pierce the cake all over with a wooden skewer. Pour the topping evenly over the cake. Serve warm or cool.
