Instructions

    To make the cake: Preheat the oven to 375°F and butter two 23-cm / 9-inch round baking pans. Cream sugar and butter in a large bowl of an electric mixer until light and fluffy.

    Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Add to butter mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir in prunes and spread equal amounts into each pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool in pans then carefully remove.

    To make the cream cheese frosting: In a bowl, beat together cream cheese, 1 butter and vanilla until light and aerated. Gradually mix in 1 1/4 powdered sugar until smooth, adding the remaining powdered sugar if the frosting doesn’t look thick enough.
