WOW. This is AWESOME. I took the advice of several other reviewers and made the following changes: cut white sugar down by 1/4 cup, cut oil down by 1/4 cup, doubled the vanilla, and added TONS of cinnamon and about a tsp of nutmeg and cloves. I also used 1/2 whole wheat flour and half AP flour and added about 1/2 tsp more baking soda. I made 3 8" pans expecting to make a triple layer cake, but they cooked up so big that I think I'll make a double layer and then freeze the third cake. I am making this for a dinner party and was nervous about bringing an awful cake, so I also took one ramekin and made myself a little cupcake to taste before I officially committed to bringing the whole cake. MAN. It is TASTY! Mine came out very spicy becuase of all the extra cinnamon and other spices, and I plan to use Cream Cheese Frosting #2, which I expect to be smooth enough to compliment the spiciness a bit.
