  • Summary

    Stack cake, an old Appalachian dessert, is often made with an apple-butter filling, but we chose dried-plum butter instead.

    Ingredients

    • 4 cups pitted dried plums (prunes)
    • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice (from 2 large oranges)
    • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest, plus 1 tablespoon fresh juice
    • 2/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
    • Pinch of coarse salt
    • 4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
    • 1 large egg, room temperature
