3 eggs

1 c. prunes, chopped and cooked

1 c. buttermilk

2 t. soda

½ t. salt

1 t. allspice

½ t. nutmeg

1 c. black walnuts

There weren’t any baking directions with this recipe.  Grandma makes it as a sheet cake.  I know she uses baby food for the prunes.  Pour the sauce over the cake after it is baked.
