- 100 g butter, softened
- 200 g sugar
- 200 g self raising flour
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts
- 1 cup prunes
Put prunes, walnuts, baking soda and boiling water in a bowl. Set aside.
Cream butter with sugar, add egg and beat until light and fluffy. Add prunes and walnuts (including water) and flour. Mix until combined. Put in a greased ring tin (20cm) and cook at 180C for about 30-40 minutes (depending on oven) or until skewer comes out clean.
Once cold, remove from tin and put in a nice platter. Put red, green and gold tinsel around base of cake to decorate (this is how mum did it).
This cake is nicer the next day it's made.
