Cinnamon Raisin Cake

When I needed a cake for my baby's 1st birthday, I adapted a recipe. He loved it! Cinnamon Raisin Cake
3/4 cup apple juice
1/2 cup raisin
1/2 cup prunes
1/2 cup dates
1/2 cup whole raisins
1/4 cup butter
2 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup whole white wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 Tbsp. baking powder
pureed prunes
Pureed juice, raisins, prunes, and dates. Add pureed fruit to large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients and stir until smooth. Pour into greased 8 inch square pan. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes (until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean). Cool. Frost with pureed prunes. Serve.


  1. Renee, you're crazy! Prune frosting?!!
