Mum's Special Spice Cake
140 mins (prep 20, cooking 120)
9 ingredients
10-12 servings
Mum made these every year. TRUE! HINT: The longer you leave it, the better it tastes too! She's had MANY requests for this recipe over the years, yes! Want to know why? If you try it, you won't have to guess!UPDATES!!!!! I made 4 of them yesterday and found I lowered to oven temperature to about 165 degrees Celsius; they each took about 55 minutes to cook! The cake is done when a skewer comes out clean, but you don't want to be opening and closing the oven door a lot.ALSO: While Mum's directions indicated GREASE WELL, it does not mean A LOT, just that the surface is covered with lard and then lightly floured. I was also wondering if a sugar icing was not on it but I can't remember and can no longer ask Mum as she has now passed away! :)Hope this helps someone!
