    This sounds yummy! I love spice cake too. Don’t answer today, Suzanne….enjoy your birthday….but I don’t see where/when the butter goes in. Usually you would mix it with the sugar and then the eggs, etc. Have a lovely birthday.

    I just made this cake. It is wonderful. Really light and fluffy. I didn’t have the ingredients for the frosting… we just ate it warm from the oven. My DH doesn’t care for frosting much anyway. The directions didn’t say at what temp. to set the oven, I baked it at 350 degrees as that is what most cakes bakes at. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Will be making this one AGAIN!

      Judy! Thank you for telling me that! I don’t know what I was thinking to leave that out! I will fix it in the instructions. And yes, it is 350!

    I tried this out last night and it was delicious! I made cupcakes – the recipe yields about 18. I had some cake flour on hand so I used that and they were so light and fluffy! This is a great addition to my rotation!
