Sour Cream and Prune Cake.
Updated: Jan 20
This is a really delicious moist cake that can be used for afternoon tea, morning tea or as a dessert
I have also made this cake by using a large pear cut into pieces. You could also use a large apple. When I used pear, I actually cooked the sliced pear in the port but decided that it was not really necessary.
