Prune cake... really?

So I was talking to someone the other day about baking and she mentioned how when she was calling bakeries for her daughters wedding one place was pretty insistent on their prune cake. When she expressed that she didn't think it would be the bride's first choice the person on the other end of the phone seemed shocked that she was doubting her recommendation of prune cake as a choice for a wedding.

We both thought it was funny and couldn't imagine serving prune cake at a wedding unless you wanted your guests to leave shortly there after.

Anyways this morning I was watching The View, I love it with Whoopi, and what did they have on there but PRUNE CAKE! ETA: It was the Poineer Woman who was on the View and she had her prune cake.

Am I missing something? Has anyone ever actually eaten it before, on purpose?

Actually, that is what I was going to tell you, the Pioneer Woman. I also have a ton of old Alaskan cookbooks that have prune cake in them, mostly because 1) there were very few fresh fruit options in Alaska back in the 1900's, and 2) when winter came and the outhouse was outside, you needed all the help you could get! ;) Good luck with that recipe.
