Upside down healthy prunes cake

I baked another no fat cake today. I left butter completely out and only added a couple of spoon of milk and yogurt besides the usual whole wheat flour and sugar. I added also two eggs and quite a bit of prunes, so I suspect this cake is not quite as light as my carrot cake or my no fats chocolate cake, but it is still pretty healthy and also quite tasty. Actually very tasty, it is not overly sweet and has a caramel aftertaste which makes it very pleasing and decadent.

Upside down healthy prunes cake

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 6 Servings


  • 5 oz.whole wheat flour
  • 3.5 oz brown sugar
  • 20 prunes
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 spoons yogurt
  • 2 spoons milk
  • 1 apple


  1. I started out buy soaking the prunes in a mix of marsala and hot water. I microwaved them for 30 second to speed up the process. I took half the prunes and blended them with a bit of their soaking water until they reduced to a nice puree. I added the whole wheat flour and the brown sugar as well as baking powder and a pinch of salt. I mixed everything and then added in the eggs, the yogurt and the milk. You should get a smooth rather stiff batter, if it is too stiff add another bit of milk. I diced half the apple and added it to the batter and saved the rest for decorating the cake. I took a loaf pan, greased it and I added the remaining prunes and apple on the bottom of the pan. I poured the batter on top and cooked the cake at 385F for about 40 minutes. Once the cake is ready, turn it on a serving dish and your apples and prunes will be on top of the cake.
  2. Perfect for breakfast or as a snack.
  3. On a different note I decorated my first cupcakes!!

    I read somewhere that you can substitute butter and part of the sugar in a cake with a prunes and water blend and I gave it a try. I was skeptical but it worked great!
