Apart from Kueh Lapis, Prunes is not a familiar baking ingredient. So, we got curious and ask Home cook Carol on why she chose Prune instead of other berries. She mentioned that Prune is a natural choice to her because it is packed with a lot of nutrients and vitamins that are great for her grandchildren. It helps in building strong bones and muscles, and aids in bowel movement due to its high content of dietary fibre! In addition, Del Monte California Pitted Prunes is a Healthier Choice snack that has no sugar added. This will help to maintain her grandchildren’s weight and keep them active.
