Sugar Plum Cake

Visions of sugar plums dancing in my head over this cake.

Our two weeks in France went by so fast. And I was right about all the pastries we ate. There are a couple of things we had while there that I want to try and recreate. Like the cream puffs that the little bakeries in the town we stayed in made. They had a chunky sugar (sucre pearl) sprinkled on top with powdered sugar on top of that.We had those several times in Provence. I loved the large sugar palmiers that we bought each morning for breakfast, and the Macarons that we had from Laduree were wonderful.

Before leaving on our trip I made this Sugar Plum Cake for a group of friends one night. I didn’t want to tell them that it was made from prunes because I was afraid that the cake would be shunned. So I simply said it was a sugar plum cake made with plums. Everyone enjoyed the cake and I finally fessed up to the fact that it was indeed made from prunes. Maybe most people don’t like prunes but I love them. Can’t stand the juice because it looks and taste like it is made for someone 90 years old with a problem. I do love having the individually wrapped prunes on hand for snacks.

This is a recipe my sister gave me and another one of her recipes she has been trying to get me try for quite some time. So, I decided one day to make it and I was very happy with the results.
