Preheat oven to 350° F.

In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup white sugar, wine, cinnamon stick, orange strips and prunes. Simmer over low heat until prunes are plump and tender, about 20 minutes. Remove prunes with a slotted spoon and let cool.

Mix flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon and salt in a bowl. Beat together 6 tablespoons butter and remaining white sugar until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until fluffy. Stir in zest and extract. Add dry ingredients alternately with buttermilk, mixing until just blended.

Melt remaining butter and brown sugar in the bottom of a 9-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat, stirring to dissolve. Carefully arrange prunes in a single layer in skillet; spoon cake batter over fruit.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes then carefully invert cake onto a flat plate.
