I love cloves! There, I said it. I know that some people associate it with early childhood trips to the dentist but that is not MY experience. I remember my Grandmother's kitchen, aromas of clove, cinnamon and cardamom drifting through the air. Rarely does clove get the feature recipe; it's usually buried under tamer cousins. So, if you also adore cloves and a rich, dense cake, give this a try.
