      I loved the flavor of this spice cake and the sweetness of it. This spice cake is really sweet from the honey syrup, but loved having it with a nice hot cup of coffee. Made as written. Made for ZWT9 ~ The Apron String Travelers

      I feel terrible that I'm not totally overjoyed. :( We love spice cake & cakes with syrup poured over them but ... in my opinion, there is way too much sugar here. My cake FLOATED when I added the syrup. :o I would halve the syrup recipe, leave out the sugar & just use 1c honey & 1c water. I would double the spices in the cake. But that's us. It's LOVELY the way it is, we just thought it could use a bit more. Thank you, Mikekey! Made for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers. :) GO TEAM!

      This cake has a wonderful flavor. I made this cake for the Vegan Challenge for ZWT9. In doing so I had to use a substitution for the eggs. I used 1/3 C applesauce for each egg. The cake turned out pretty heavy but tasty. Made for ZWT9.
