“This is from an old PTA cookbook from my town. The man who submitted the recipe had a local restrauant for years. Don't be scared off the pepper, this cake just has a strong spice taste, something like licorice. I bake in a bundt pan, but this be made in loaf pans I guess. This cake was somewhat dry when I first made it but the flavor and the moistness improve over time.”
