WWI Spice Cake

September 7, 2016

WWI Spice CakeThis recipe contains no eggs, milk or butter. This is an authentic World War I cake that was popular when rationing was in full force in England. It's a dense spice cake that goes with pretty much anything. Coffee, ice cream, a cold glass of milk, hot chocolate, well, you get the idea.
