Another DIY cake mix for your larder! I am collecting these to put in a cookbook for my children (and I of course!). A spice cake can be used for so many other kinds of cakes too...carrot cakes, applesauce cakes, oatmeal cakes, etc. I hope you enjoy this recipe and the convenience of being able to have it on the shelf if you need it, without having to get it at the store. This is not only easier, but cheaper!
