Crusader Cake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by mandabears

A wonderful spicey cake with a delicious lemon glaze. Starts with a cake mix, but you can't even tell. As my D-I-L would say this cake is "wicked good" You can also add 1/4 teaspoon allspice and cut the oil down to 1/2 cup without affecting the yummniest of the cake.

I love this cake. I am very partial to spice cakes and am always looking for new and different ways to make them. This one is a keeper. I frosted it with white frosting but that is just my preference. Thankyou so much for sharing!
