Fudgy Oat Flour Cake

Believe it or not… This cake has prunes in it and you wouldn’t know it by taste.   I am thinking the prune butter helps give this cake a fudgy texture.  I love prune butter in foldover cookies, on toast etc…  You basically can use it like apple butter and it is very easy to make, just take dried prunes cover with water and cook on low.  Remove from heat and mash them up.  If you want a sweeter prune butter add a little sugar while cooking with the water.
