Prune Coffee Cake
■ Trm iMiiwmTuiiiiiii ■■ inn iw ■! i ■
For an energy pick-up, quick and nutritious, serve this excellent prunp
cake with mugs of milk.
Hot breads are an appetizing invitation to "come and get It";
especially when winter storms are blowing outside. This year’s, goo a
supplies of dried fruits make them a good item to team with enriched
flour’s thrifty protein, iron and B-vitamins for nourishing, flavorful
A versatile bread, indeed, is this prune coffee cake with its attrac*
tive crumble topping. Serve it for breakfast, of course — but also for
luncheon with a Lenten salad plate of diced fruits and cheese, and
when friends drop in for “a snack”. !
If you dip your scissors in water before cutting the prunes, the
fruit will be less likely to stick to the blades. You will also find it a
good idea to “dust” the chopped fruit with part of the sifted dry
ingredients to keep the fruit from sticking together. J
