Spice Cake (a Bundt Cake)

Garrison Wayne


I have always loved spice cake. I would usually request it for my birthday when I was a child. Mom always used Duncan Hines Cake Mixes. It has taken me until now to think to make it from scratch using my own original recipe. I am very pleased to say that this is a very good cake. Bundt Cakes are good keepers and they don't need quite as much frosting as a 2 layer cake. Spice Cake is especially good in the Fall. I hope you can make one for you and your family or friends this season.....oh, and pour a really cold glass of milk to go with!

How to Make Spice Cake (a Bundt Cake)


  1. Grease and flour a 10-12 cup Bundt Pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients in a medium bowl with a fork and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the 3 eggs yolks and beat well.
  5. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the buttermilk. Beat until quite smooth. Stir in vanilla.
  6. In a clean non plastic bowl, beat the 3 egg whites until just stiff and still glossy.
  7. Fold the beaten egg whites in to the cake batter until no bits of the whites are visible.
  8. Turn batter out in to the prepared bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 42 minutes. Test with a pick as ovens vary.
  9. Cool cake in pan for 15-20 minutes on a rack, then unmold to cool completely on the rack. Tapping the pan on the counter before turning out is helpful.
  10. Make the frosting when the cake is cooled by mixing all the ingredients in a medium bowl until very smooth. Adjust liquid or sugar to reach desired consistency.
  11. Frost the cake about 2/3 of the way down the sides and cover the top completely. Cover with a cake dome at room temperature.
