Does anyone have a fail-safe recipe for prune filling? I want to make some of that yummy cardamom coffeebread I remember my mother making:)

I am salivating while looking through my recipe books. The cardamom bread recipes didn't have separate prune fillings (one had raisin), but I found this one that sounds good:

Here's another possibility.

PRUNE FILLING In 2-quart saucepan, heat 1 cup pitted prunes, chopped, 1 1/4 cups cups water, and 2 strips lemon peel (each 3" by 3/4") to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, uncovered, 12 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove lemon peel. In food processor with knife blade attached, or blender, blend prune mixture with 6 tablespoons sugar to form thick puree. Makes 1 cup.
