Very good indeed. Great if you don't want a sweet heavy chocolatety cake. Got even better the next day, nice and moist but not heavy. Will definitely make again.
This was a nice moist spice cake,will omit the nuts next time as my family prefers spice cakes without. I added the spices from Early American Spice Cake, which was also good but on the dry side. This cake is very moist and not heavy. Made it with Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting # 26442 which is very good with this type of cake !
I added a layer of apples to bottom of pan, tossed them in 2 Tbsp of sugar 1 Tsp cinnamon and 2 Tbsp of lemon juice. poured the mix over the apples and spread evenly bake at same temp but add 5 minutes. Turned out great!
I live in a higher elevation and normally I have to add more flour to everything and adjust the temperature- but the mix seemed pretty thick already so I left the recipe alone. The cake was dense and crumbled all apart and had nothing to bond it together- extremely dry. It's my husbands birthday so I had to attempt it again- I added 3/4 cup of milk and another egg- and it turned out just ok : ( .
Very good, but a little heavy on the cloves, even though I followed the advice/opinions of others and decreased the amount from 1 1/4 tsp to just 1 tsp. That was about the only spice we could taste. HOWEVER, I don't want to dissuade anyone from trying this recipe! Just that for our tastes, the clove was heavy, and next time I make it, I'll try 1/2 tsp and see how that works out. We topped our cake with a basic cream cheese icing, and as an overall, the cake texture and moistness were fine, and it was easy to make.
just got done making this cake for my DH's birthday, since spice cake is his favorite and it is delicious. I only used 1 tsp of cloves like other reviewers requested and made a homemade cream cheese frosting. Delicious. Thanks for a great and easy recipe!
I made this cake last night and it turned out fantastic! I baked in a bundt cake pan and drizzled with a brown sugar glaze and it was delicious. I can't wait to try a piece today since many reviewers said its better the next day! Thanks!!
This cake is now a family favorite. I love the texture and you can adjust the spices to appeal to your taste. For example, I didn't have ground cloves so just added a bit more allspice and cinnamon. I served this for my birthday a few weeks ago with my mom's famous caramel icing and now have to make it for my son's birthday today because he's been dreaming about having it again. A very simple and delicious recipe. Thanks for sharing Mini.
This cake was wonderful. Very moist. I used a cream cheese glaze on it
This turned out wonderfully! I took the advice of some of the reviewers and cut the cloves down to one tsp. I also used gluten-free flour (and a tsp of xantham gum) but it tasted just like a regular spice cake. The cake is even better a couple of days later as it became even moister.
