This is the easiest spice cake you will ever make. I got this from the back of a McCormick allspice tin.

Top Review by Chocolatl

I used a lemon cake mix. I tasted the batter, and wasn't sure the amount of spices would be enough. Was I surprised when I had some of the cake! It was just wonderful. All the flavors came through beautifully. This is a really good way to enhance a cake mix. Thanks for posting. Made for My-3-Chefs, November 2009.
