“This is, in my mind, the taste of autumn placed into a cake. I highly suggest letting it cool, slightly then rubbing butter all over the cake, while the cake is still warm enough to melt the butter. I use a cake mixer for this so the mixing goes a little smoother, than by hand.”
1 9 x 13 cake

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Place the sugar, eggs, water, and cream into a mixing bowl and mix well.
  3. Add the nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda mix again.
  4. Add the shortening, I use cold shortening, and break it up with the cake mixer, but you can just break it small by hand.
  5. Add the flour and mix until an even consistency
  6. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 cake pan, cook for 30 minutes at 350
  7. Pull the cake out and let cool in tin.
  8. Optional: Let stand approximately 10 minutes and take a stick of butter and rub it generously across the cake.
