Spice Cake Comfort - 34 recipes

Spice cake tastes like home. There seem to be as many variations of this dessert as there are grandmothers and aunties. The blending of cinnamon, cloves, allspice, ginger and nutmeg give these cake recipes their distinctive flavor. Spice cake is even better if you let the flavors blend overnight - if you can wait that long!
