cooks wisdom: up the cinnamon! For cinnamon lovers, use 2 teaspoons, for other folks use at least 1 full teaspoon.
1 c snipped pitted prunes (from a 12 oz package)
1/2 c boiling water
1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c spelt or whole wheat flour
4 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 (I used a rounded measure) cinnamon
2/3 c packed brown sugar
grated zest from one orange
1 c chopped pecans ( I did not use, but the next time, oh yeah!)
1/3 c oil
2/3 c milk
Pour boiling water over prunes and let sit.
Stir together the flours, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, combine well to distribute the baking powder. Add the zest, pecans and brown sugar, mix again.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, add the egg, oil and milk. Whisk the center to combine the liquid ingredients and break of the egg. Then mix in the dry ingredients from the side of the bowl.
Fold in the prunes and the liquid. Turn batter into a prepared 9X5 loaf pan. Bake approximately 1 hour or until done in your oven. Let cool 10-15 minutes in the pan, turn our to cool completely.
Let cool, then wrap and store 24 hours before serving.
