This cake was a bit dry and blander than I was going for as is. Made it again with a few changes...
Use brown sugar, not white.
Use hot coffee instead of hot water.
Double the spices (but maybe not the cloves, depending on your preferences!).
Add 1/2 c. of Greek yogurt or apple sauce for moisture.
Bake 50-55 mins instead of 60, just until toothpick comes out clean.
The cake was good as written, but exceptional with the above changes! Served with a homemade caramel sauce (butter, cream, sugar, vanilla, salt - easy to find a simple recipe) and perhaps a bit of vanilla bean ice cream or whipped cream, takes the cake from incredibly delicious to over-the-top good! I'll be making this again and again once the cooler weather hits.
