This posting comes after a long time. We were busy moving, packing and then unpacking, arranging,.....While this was going on we fed ourselves well, I think. While unpacking I found Marlene Sorosky's "Cookery for entertaining" book. It is a neat little book with some amazing recipes. I like the Prune bread recipe from this book. It has been tried and tasted a few times at this new abode.
So starting with the recipe....
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1-1/2 cups chopped dried prunes
1 cup boiling water
1 tsp instant coffee
1/2 cup honey
2-1/4 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup chopped walnuts
Soak chopped prunes in boiling water. Once prune mixture cools, whip egg in this mixture. Mix all the ingredients together with the whisked egg mixture. Bake it for 50-60 minutes in a square pan. Let it cool and serve!
In the book, it shows a fun way to bake it in coffee cans. It makes a cute presentation.For us, there is no time for presentation, the hungry family is ready to eat anything off the plates as soon as it is served :)
