MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2012

Great way to use up expired milk (as buttermilk)! Next time I'll add nuts or raisins to give the cake a bit of a bite.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 19, 2009

This is a delicious cake. I think adding 1 cup of raisins would add to the flavor. My husband felt it was a bit strong on cloves so next time I think I will half the cloves. I don't like to make icing so this is ideal with the crumb topping.
