  • CAKE:
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar together.
  • With the mixer on low, begin adding the eggs one at a time; beat until all eggs are mixed in. Add the vanilla and beat just until combined.
