Wow! I just took this out of the oven, it's not even cooled yet. I just had to taste it, and I did. This is so moist, so flavorful, I'm just blown away! I keep trying Kitten's low-fat or fat free recipes,as I am on a low fat assignment Lol! I keep waiting to find a low/free (fat)recipe that I don't like! I am not a clove person, and nutmeg is right up there too, so I just put extra cinnamon in it. I had whole allspice so I ground it up. I can't even find 1 thing wrong with this recipe! Thanks so much for sharing, Kitten! This is definately a keeper!
