Plum Cake, Another Way

Ingredients for cake batter:
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 cup oil
2 small jars plums (baby food, without tapioca - small jars are approximately 4 ounces)
2 cups flour (unsifted)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup pecans (optional)

Ingredients for glaze:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice

Preparing the cake:

Combine the sugar, eggs and oil in a medium bowl and mix well. Add the plums.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, cloves, baking soda and cinnamon. Add the dry ingredients to the moist mixture and mix just until combined. Add pecans, if desired.

Pour the batter into a greased and floured bundt cake pan and bake at 325 degrees F for 1 hour, or until the cake tests done.

Preparing the glaze:
Combine the butter, powdered sugar and lemon juice.

When the cake is done, unmold and brush with the glaze. Cool before cutting.

Serves 8 to 10
