How To Make Spice Cake Recipe From Scratch

 via Dave Hood, Cook’n Share

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F or 177 C.

Add the flour, corn starch, baking powder, and spices to a mixing bowl. Whisk until well combined.

Next, add the milk, eggs, and vanilla extract to a smaller bowl. Again, whisk until well incorporated.

Mix the dry ingredients and butter over low speed, then change to medium, until a pebbly crumbly mixture forms.

Add in the milk mixture 1/3 at a time while continuing to mix until a smooth mixture forms.

Now, add in the brown sugar and mix until just combined.

Place the walnuts in and, using a spatula, fold them together.

Spray and nine by thirteen baking pan with spray and line the bottom with parchment paper.

Add the cake mixture in and smooth out.

Place in the oven and bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

In the meantime, make the frosting by combining the sugar, vanilla extract, and butter. Mix until smooth and creamy. Add some milk if it’s too thick.

After it cools, place a wire rack over the baking tray and flip the cake over onto it.

Cut the cake in half and frost one side.

Frost the top and spread a few more walnuts over the top. I place a couple of cinnamon sticks on for decorations too.

Slice and enjoy your moist and decadent spice cake.
