    Juenessa's Note:

    This is a substantial yet tender spice cake that's flavorful enough to serve unadorned. Also great with a bit of whipped cream on top.

      Boy, does this smell good while baking. I made this to use as the main component of a dessert and it was the perfect thing. It's richly flavored and firm enough to cut into small squares. This is good sliced as any cake would be with your favorite topping. I made a 1/2 batch (1 9" cake pan) and it was done in 30 mins.
