Wonderful cake and super easy to make…even for me!  I did note that the cake went down a bit after l took it out of the oven.  My parents really loved the cake ...

Happy Baking

Review: The cake is best the second day as the flavors blend together a lot more…my son that thought it was OK…said the next day it was wonderful….by the way the second day it was gone!

When l got this book l thought to myself…boy am l going to get fat…but hey,,the cakes are not long around enough for you to eat seconds!lololol

Your cake looks delicious!  Thanks so much for the tasting notes, I like most things better the second day, too.  What did you use to drizzle over the cake?

grin Well l definatly recomend eating it the next day or at least from morninng to nignt.  The flavores mix alot better. The next time l think l will add some jamaican peper for an extra splash of taste….let me know what you think of the cake.

See you soon Lina

Like you, I have found,  and I know others have too, that the flavours of most of the cakes I have made from RHC seem to be better the second day after making.  but this goes for lots of things , I always find a casserole tastes better the second day!  It must be because ingredients have time to meld together and this enhances the flavour.  The banana cake with cream cheese frosting is especially good the second day and even the next day too, if it lasts that long for you!  Do try it, I have made it several times and will make it again, I’m sure. tongue wink

I second you in saying that cakes usually taste better the second day. I made the banana cake several times too, I really love it, and it’s also delicious on its own, without the frosting!!!

I made this one a while back - wasn’t really that thrilled with the flavor combination.  Each of the components were fine individually, but combining a spice cake with a peanut butter frosting was a little unusual for me.

i have a question about the frosting- it has a subtle bitter taste/tone to it.  did anyone else use another peanut butter other than Jif?
other than that, i love this cake.

I have been wanting to make this frosting but not at all interested in pairing it with spice cake.  I would be interested in hearing of other combinations.  I am thinking of pairing it with chocolate… the question is which chocolate cake.

Iggy & Patricia—beautiful cakes, both.  I’m going to have to try that swirl gag, Patricia!  Really pretty!

I have been wanting to make this frosting

In addition to chocolate, it would probably be awesome on a banana cake or on the white velvet cake!

I want to join the “better the next day club,” as I couldn’t agree more.  They get better and better—even the 4th day after baking is super fabulous.  I never judge a cake the day of baking, becuase I know whatever it is, it will be even better!!

Re Jif:  I find it very bitter with little peanut taste.  I’ve found that Arrowhead Mills natural organic is great, and once you stir it, it won’t separate again.  It’s very creamy and not grainy linke some naturals.  Its only ingredient is roasted peanuts, so I usually add a little extra salt to the recipe.
