Another classic cake recipe from Inez. It is easy to make and just yummy to eat. I made this cake on real butter and not margarine. It is so worth it. The balance of spice ingredients is perfect. As I ate this cake, it kept minding me of cinnamon roll. I iced this cake with Inez's Yummy Caramel Frosting # 21896. MMMM heaven!!

This cake is very yummy! I made it twice to try to perfect for my tastes. I like the spices doubled. I think it is a tiny bit dry the first day (especially for all the butter) but if you cover it and refridgerate over night it really moistens up to perfection. The spices become richer as well. Thanks!

My cake needed to bake longer than the 40 minutes to get done in the middle. I thought the cake needed more spices. Next time, I will follow advice of other reviewers and use 1.5 times the spices. Cake was moist.
