Spicey, fruity, moist cake that starts with a cake mix. Easy to make. I usually dust it with confectioners sugar but it is equally delicious with a caramel frosting.

Easy, moist, and very delicious cake! It was a hit at work and I'll be sharing the recipe. I read another recipe for prune something that said to cook the prunes in tea, so I used Constant Comment and thought that would be a good flavor addition. It was too subtle to tell, but I will try it again with stronger tea. I just got a shipment of things from Penzey's Spices and wanted to try the Cake Spice. I added 2 teaspoons to the cake batter. It made the cake even more tasty than it already was. One thought it was kind of like gingerbread. Thanks for a great recipe I'll be making again!
