Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  • In a medium-size saucepan, heat 1-1/4 cups of the apple juice concentrate with the prunes and butter over medium heat. Cook until butter is melted and mixture just begins to simmer, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.

On low speed, beat in half the flour mixture, then milk, then remaining flour mixture. Stir in vanilla; spread into prepared pan. Bake at 325 degrees F for 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out with moist crumbs. Cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes; then remove pan and cool completely.

  • Meanwhile, combine raspberries, remaining apple juice concentrate and 2 tablespoons water in a mini chopper. Pulse until pureed. Strain through a sieve; discard solids. Once cake has cooled, dust top with a little cocoa powder. Slice and serve with raspberry puree and sugar-free ice cream.
