Directions

undefined

Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃) F.

Coat a 12-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray and dust with flour.

Spread chopped walnuts in a small baking pan and bake until golden and fragrant, 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool.

Mix well flour, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, ground flaxseeds, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Add buttermilk, brown sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla, beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.

Mix well hot water and prune purée in a measuring cup, add to the batter and mix until incorporated.

Fold in chocolate and the toasted nuts with a rubber spatula. Spread evenly the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake the cake until the top springs back when touched lightly and when a wood stick inserted in the center, it comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes or more.

Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn out onto the rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.
