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 !

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.
