Chocolate Prunes Pie


by: Anncoo

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you probably would have known that I LOVE PRUNES. I can't wait to try out this recipe ~ Chocolate Prunes Pie from the same book that I made Potato Pie the other day and it turned out really good. The filling is more like a soft cake with ground hazelnut with a hint of rum flavour. It is also not very sweet even with the added pitted prunes. If you love prunes, then this recipe is for you.
