Is that a prune cake ? It does look tasty.
I guess it qualifies :)

I used plums in syrup, they got a bit dry and wrinkly in the baking process.
It was a very simple cake from a cake mix that allows both "standard" preparation with nonvegan ingredients, or replacing the egg/butter with apple sauce, ground nuts and plant oil.

I credit especially the inclusion of ground walnuts with the very short life of the finished cake, they greatly improved the taste.

You need to sink them more into the batter before baking or alternatively do an upside cake.;)

Yes, I was actually considering that, but the recipe specifically stated to put them on top of the batter.

I was hoping for a result like this (this is the actual package):

So yes, with the second package that is included in the box, I will put the fruit into the batter...

That's what I meant; you place the fruit on top of the batter but you slightly sink them in. Like that you don't have the whole fruit on the surface.

Possibly the non-vegan version of the batter is more runny and allows the fruit to sink in better....

The batter should be quite dense if you want to slightly sink them in, if not they'd sink to the bottom.

A huge batch of white seitan plus some carrots. Half of it will go into the freezer and I will use some for tonight's dinner.

I'm going to make vegan corned seitan and more soda bread.
ETA: Soda bread is in the oven! It smells so good.

I thought that you lot were on a diet. :rolleyes::p
That’s why I haven’t baked anything! I keep seeing recipes I want to try and then I stop myself because I’m finally in weight loss mode. Ben helped jump start it and I’d like to continue for a few more pounds. Although I might break down to try this soda bread. I can have some and bring the rest to work on Monday.
