This recipe is the BOMB!

I was too lazy to make the icing, even though I have all the ingredients. It really is guilding the lily. The cake plain, by itself, is very nice, if a little too sweet; next time I will cut the sweetener down a bit. I used Davinci SF French Vanilla syrup, and I ground the cloves up with the other spices in my mortar. (I feel so virtuous.)

It didn't rise very much, but it has a nice, cake-like texture. Would be good with berries & whipped cream instead of the icing. The recipe is, incidentally, dairy free, gluten free, vegetarian, and Pareve (without the icing).

Definitely a winner!
