I didn’t have any Armagnac, so I used French Brandy….which had so little alcohol fumes it wouldn’t even flame.

I was so disappointed.

My came out great, other than not folding in the egg whites enough. I ended up with little white chunks in my cake LOL

This cake was great! I had to deep six the booze and the prunes, though!

I went with whisky and no frosting. Practically diet food.

I’m so glad you liked it! I like prunes too, that’s one of the reasons I chose this cake. 🙂 Thanks for baking along with me this week!

To be honest, I think I may have liked this better without the frosting too! I ate around it! Not that it was bad, but the cake was riiiiich!

I like prunes too. I think they suffer from a bad reputation. Too many grandmothers eating them or something. This cake was fun and delicious.

You’re immuned from prune side affects? LMAO! I wish I had that super power. Maybe I’d eat, cook, bake with prunes more. Glad you enjoyed the cake.

This looks yummy!

260? What? Do you like oatmeal?! If you don’t like it hot, I heard making a low fat granola with lots of old fashion oats is just a good for you.

Your cake looks fab Madame Chow. I agree that the frosting was not strictly necessary – and those lower calories, LOL.

I really have to get this cake made soon. Especially if it tastes like a giant brownie. Mmmm.

I know you are glad to have your kitchen and coming back to TWD and Db. Both of those look just right. Absolutely delicious.

Wow, your year is off to a rough start! I hope things (starting with the cholesterol!) start to normalize for you soon. Your cake looks amazing. We loved it too — and yes, it IS just like a giant brownie!

Glad to see you’re back in business. Any food with fruit in it has to healthy, right? I guess I’d better go out on the prowl for some Armagnac now.

You’ve been quite busy! Great job on the cake. I wish I’d skipped the glaze too. It was my least favorite part of the recipe.
