Spice Cake Recipe.
When baking spice cake, the entire house feels as if it is wrapped in cinnamon love. Last week’s spice cake lasted several days, and was the go-to food for kids rushing out the door for the bus. So, I decided to try a different version – similar, but different.
- 2 cups gluten-free all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. cloves
- 1/4 tsp. mace – or allspice
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 egg, 1 egg yolk, beaten
- 2/3 cups sour milk
- 1/3 cup butter melted
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- Optional: 1/2 cup dried fruit
Notes: Sift all dry ingredients. I didn’t bother with separating the egg white and beating it separately. I also substituted allspice for mace (no mace in the spice cabinet). I did add about 1/2 cup of dehydrated apples, the very last from last year’s crop. This was a nice addition.
Butter a rectangular baking dish. Use a spatula to spread the batter around. Bake for 25 minutest at 350 degrees.
