Spice Cake With Caramel Frosting

Total Time

This is from one of my all-time favorite cookbooks, The Best of Mennonite Fellowship Meals. I can't tell you how good this is! You just have to try it yourself. For those of you who don't have a sweet tooth like I do, try it without the frosting. It's still delicious!

This was super easy to put together and smelled lovely. We found it quite dry, though. The frosting was a must so it wasn't so dry. Nice flavor, just the texture that bothered me. Thanks for a great one to try, Whisper!
