Most of the recipes I have found have either pumpkin or carrot. I would like a plain spice cake preferably with cake mix.
Thanks in advance.
The Whimisacal Bakehouse Spice cake recipe is delicious, I used it with a cinnamon B/C. I'll dig it out if you need it, but sorry it's all from scratch.
You can add apple or pumpkin pie *spice* mix to a yellow cake. I've done it a time or two.
Find a scratch recipe for spice cake and add just the amounts & types of spices called for there to a yellow, fr. van. or white mix.
My daughter loves spice cake, it is all she wants and has actually got all her friends to liking it. I use the box mix and add the normal ingredients plus a cup of sourcream and 1 package of apple cider mix. (single serving of powder form) I get it in the hot cocoa area of the grocery store. Its really good.
Thank you everybody for your thoughts! I'll surely try something out with the Apple cider mix
I used this recipe for a wedding cake I recently made. It is absolutely delicious, got rave reviews at the reception of 350! I had actually made three different flavored cakes (one for each tier and then there were sheet cakes to feed the masses)
Buttermilk Spice Cake
2.5 cups AP flour
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar packed
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup butter
oven temp 350
In medium bowl combine eggs and 1/3 cup buttermilk. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients, mix on low speed for 30 seconds to blend. Add the butter (room temp) and the remaining buttermilk (1 cup). Mix on low speed until the dry ingredients are moistened. Increase speed to medium (high speed if using hand mixer) and beat for 1 1/2 minutes to develope the cakes structure. Scrape down the sides. Gradually add the egg mixture in three batches scraping down the sides and beating for 20 seconds after each addition. Scrape batter into prepared pans (I usually spray with bakers secret and line bottom w parchment). For two 8 inch pans bake 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
This recipe is melt in your mouth delicious but still strong enough to stack well. Hope this helps. (I usually cover with white chocolate cream cheese buttercream)
