Excellent cake for a basis to put your own spin on it...did not fall in the middle like some reported, but that is because someone usually over-beats the cake batter. Put it in a 13x9 pan and it baked beautifully in 40 minutes...When making cakes with lots of spice, I usually split the sugar between white and light brown...gives the cake depths of flavor...usually, I add more vanilla (homemade, of course), cinnamon, allspice, ground cloves, and nutmeg to put it over the top. As a professional private caterer, I must make sure that the majority of people who eat my food are satisfied...This cake will do that! Baking IS a science...but the flavors are up to the individual.
