Baking at home is always very exciting. I like the nice smell of baking around the kitchen. I tried prunes and walnut in my cake. The gooeyness of the prunes and the crunchiness of the walnuts was like a match made in heaven. It was a truly delicious cake which I enjoyed with a cup of coffee for my afternoon snack.

I hope you will like my cake. Let me know what you think about this prune and walnut cake. If you've made something similar, feel free to share the link on the comment below.
