This is an unusual cake, with almost a gingerbread taste to it, because of the spices. It is very moist, very dark brown. I like anything with cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon, people who aren't so enthusiastic, want want to reduce the amount of cloves and nutmeg by half. Fast, easy cake to put together, I cooked in in a very large fluted pie pan, to get pretty wedges. Would be nice served with whipped cream and cinnamon. I'll make it again.
