"Moist as oil based cakes are typically. However, heavy as oil based cakes tend to be, as well. Replacing half the oil with unsweetened applesauce lightens things up a lot without compromising moistnes..." See mores. The addition of 1/2 tsp baking powder resulted in a higher, lighter cake, as well. This recipe is very pale in flavor. Spice cakes should have a definite, robust taste, redolent of the spices used. Results were helped tremendously by doubling the cinnamon and cloves, adding ground nutmeg, allspice, ginger and mace (1/2 tsp of each.) As you can probably guess, I feel there is potential with the given recipe, but just too much need for adjustments to merit a higher score."
"This recipe makes a nice moist cake. I did punch up the spices, doubling the cinnamon and cloves, and adding a tsp. or ground ginger, because I like spicy cakes. I made a lemon glaze for the top, whic..." See moreh also added some nice flavor. (Cream cheese ising would have been better, but I had lemons, not cream cheese!) Tastes better the second day."
"I added the extra spices, as suggested above. This cake tasted WONDERFULLY, but I had one MAJOR problem. When I pulled the cake out of the oven after the 45 minutes, I did the toothpick test, and it..." See more came out clean, so I knew it was done cooking. I let it sit overnight so that the spices would mix well. When I pulled it out this morning to cut it apart and get it ready for our brunch, the middle had fallen, so that it was half the height of the rest! Add insult to injury - I cut it in half, and in the center of the cake was uncooked cake. How it could have been uncooked after I tested it, I don't know! But I had to throw out about half of the cake. Major waste."
