- Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan oven 160°C, Gas Mark 4. Grease and line a 500g loaf tin.
- Put the prunes into a sieve placed over a bowl, to capture 2tbsp of the juice. Chop the prunes roughly.
- Mix together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl.
- In a jug, beat the egg, then add the orange zest and juice, reserved prune juice, vegetable oil, yogurt and honey. Beat together.
- Tip the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir together, but do not beat. Add the prunes and stir them through. Transfer to the prepared tin and sprinkle the demerara sugar over the surface.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes until firm. To check that the cake is cooked, insert a fine skewer – it should come out clean. If not, cook for a few more minutes. Cool in the tin for 15 minutes, then turn out and cool completely on a wire rack. Serve sliced and spread with butter.
