This is being entered for ZWT II & my source is The intro says: "This one's a classic, made from rich, dark Louisana cane syrup, like that made by Steen's Syrup Mill (my brand of choice). It's about as Cajun as it gets. Serve w/a drizzle of cane syrup if you like + some sweetened whipped cream."

This was very good! I made 2 cakes.......for one, I baked in a 13x9 inch pan and put a lemon glaze on top; for the other, I baked in a tube pan and added raisins & raisins to the batter. Both turned out really,really good!!

This is truly a Cajun classic. Steen's Syrup is sold all over LA. This cake is a delicious spice cake with just the right amount of sweetness from the syrup. I did serve it topped with additional syrup. The timing was perfect. It was baked in a bundt pan.
