- Using the kitchen machine with a paddle attachment, beat butter and condensed milk together on medium speed for approximately 10 minutes, until light and fluffy. Set aside after.
- In a separate mixing bowl, add whole eggs, egg yolks, sugar and sponge gel. Using a whisk attachment, whisk the ingredients together on high speed for 8 minutes until fluffy.

- Remove cake pan from oven and prick a few holes with a fork. Add another layer of batter, spread it evenly and bake. Repeat until batter is used up.
- At every 4th layer of uncooked batter, scatter some prunes before baking.
- As the layers build up, baking time will be shorter, to avoid burning any layer.
- On the final layer, scatter some prunes. Set oven to 180 degrees celsius, and set to “Top and bottom” heating. Bake the cake for 10 minutes.
- When done, take the cake out from the oven and allow it to cool completely.
