- Blend oil and sugar.
- Add eggs.
- Add sifted ingredients alternately with buttermilk.
- Add vanilla, prunes and nuts.
- Pour into greased 13 inch X 9 inch pan.
- Bake at 300 degrees (150 C.) for 45 minutes.
- Pour the icing over the cake in the pan while hot.
- Icing directions:
- Combine all ingredients in saucepan.
- Bring to a boil stirring constantly.
- Boil until soft ball forms in cold water.
- Pour over cake.
- I hope this recipe is close to what you are looking for. I know you said
your Grandmother served whipped topping over her's. If you just want the
cake without the icing I suppose you could just leave it off.
