    bayou-mimi's Note:

    A very pretty, light, moist tea cake. IF you use the tube or bundt pan, you can use the center as a flower vase by picking fall flowers, wrapping them in a wet towel and place in the center of the cake. I think this recipe originally came from an old Inn cookbook.

      I baked this recipe in muffin tins - it came out perfectly, very delightfully spiced. Many thanks!

      Okay, first the temp needs to be added in. I set my oven at 350 and had it bake for 1 hr. and it still wasn't completley cooked through. Also, if you put it into a bundt pan, be sure to add more liquid to it. I ended up having to compensate with 1 cup of buttermilk. I understand putting the crumbs on if you are doing a tube style, but this doesn't apply with a bundt cake (if you want it pretty on top). What I did was add a sugar/cinnamon mix to the bottom of the bundt pan for texture/flavor/decoration. Beyond that, it was really tasty.
