Spice Pound Cake

Kay Skipper


I went to a cousin's wedding in Montgomery, Alabama in 1988 and enjoyed this very moist cake during the reception.

The cake was so good, I had to have the recipe.

This Spice Pound Cake ranks in my top 10 favorite cakes because it seems to become more moist with age!

You may use a Bundt Pan, but reserve 1 cup of spice cake batter. This extra batter may be baked in a muffin tin. Using a Bundt Pan, the cake will take approximately 1 hour to bake @ 300 degrees.
