“Even though this is listed under "Desserts" it is more of a "snack" or "tea" time cake. Goes best with a hot cup of tea or coffee ... a nice cold glass of milk also works well! It is a spice cake meant to be reminiscent of a cup of spiced tea. March 6, 2008 - NOTE: Recipe edited to correct omission of baking temperature (350) and Bundt pan size which should be a Standard 12-cup Bundt pan. Almost every "decorative" Bundt pan (rose, flowers, Fleur de Lis, castle, star, etc.), has a 10-cup (or less!) capacity. If you use a decorative pan, expect excess batter. If you are unsure about your pan size, fill it with water - one cup at a time. Thanks and happy baking!!”
