My Spice Cake Recipe Will Drive You Crazy With Pleasure!

My Spice Cake Supreme is bursting with flavor!


Today, I have a great cake recipe to share with you.  This is a wonderful homemade spice cake that can be made into a layer cake or sheet cake.  Without any special fancy ingredients like cake flour, this delicious recipe turns out a light and moist cake comparable to any commercial mix.

This recipe calls for sour milk or buttermilk.  If you don't have any on hand, do not fret, dear readers.  Measure out your cup of milk and return two tablespoons.  Instead measure out two tablespoons of lemon juice and add to the measured milk.  The lemon juice curdles that sweet milk and works nicely in this recipe.

Frost with your favorite white vanilla or cream cheese icing and you will really enjoy this simple cake!

This cake is moist and delicious.

2 tablespoons of molasses (dark or light)
2 cups of light brown sugar (firmly packed)
1/2 cup margarine (not spread) or vegetable shortening
2 eggs
2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 cup of sour milk or buttermilk 

Beat the sugar and  the margarine with your electric mixer until well creamed.

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one.

Sift together all the dry ingredients and keep in a separate mixing bowl.

Alternate small amounts of the dry ingredients along with the sour milk, beating well after each addition.  Try to end with the milk as your last ingredient to keep your cake extra moist.

Grease two-9 inch layer cake pans or a 9" x 13" sheet cake pan. 

Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes for the sheet cake or 25-30 minutes for the layer cake.  Test with a toothpick to see if it is done.
