Preheat oven to 180 °C (160 °C fan. In a bowl mix thoroughly flour and baking powder, add eggs and whisk well. Add oil, warm milk and grated cheese. Fry bacon without fat about 5 minutes unitil golden.* Mix together prunes and bacon and add to the batter. Pour into baking tin and bake about 45 minutes.

Note Ulrike: I lined the tin with paper

* While preheating the oven I put a pan with the bacon into the oven. To remove the excess fat put on kitchen towel. Sprinkle prunes and bacon with little flour and add to the batter.

    I love the cross section of the loaf showing the pink of the ham and the black prunes! Looks delicious! By the way, thanks for tip about Quark – I’ve seen it in the supermarkets here but didn’t know what it was!
