I love the smell of spices. I love spice cake! The butter sauce further sweetens it and makes it wonderfully moist. Good with Cool Whip or whipped cream.

This is sooo decadently good. What a treat. Thank goodness we had lots of company or I'd have hurt myself. It smells as good as it tastes, baked in 45 minutes and disappeared in 15. I served it warm and made no changes.
