Spice Cake / Cream Cheese Glaze / One Bowl

Cassie *


This is another very easy moist, delicious cake. If you like spice cake you will love this, and certainly the ease of it.

I made this cake a few weeks ago, with demands to make it again!

I usually don't ice this cake, I make a thick glaze and as serving, add a dollop or two, and sprinkle with cinnamon.
