Fudge-Glazed Black Forest Bundt Cake


An effective fat replacer, prune purée contains fruit pectins that support the structure of baked goods, and it has natural sorbitols that extend the freshness. Organic powdered sugar is ground from evaporated cane juice into a fine powder that is used 1:1 in any recipe that calls for confectioners’ sugar. This wholesome vegan ingredient is available at health food stores and some specialty markets under the brand names Wholesome Sweeteners and Trader Joe’s.
