Spice cake uses warm fall spices to create an unforgettably moist cake. Add raisins or other dried fruit to enhance the flavour.
1/3 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp each of cloves, nutmeg and salt
2/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup chopped nuts
1 cup sour milk
Mix butter, sugar, eggs, and sour milk together.
Mix dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. Fold in nuts.
Fold wet ingredients into dry and mix just until incorporated.
Transfer to a loaf pan or layer pans. Bake in a 375 degree Fahrenheit oven until a toothpick comes out clean. Depending upon the size of the pan this could be 30 – 45 minutes.
