I actually made a lot of modifications to this recipe because I was afraid it wouldn't be moist enough, sweet enough or spicy enough. So here's what I did: I used 3 eggs, 2 cups of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of regular sugar, 3/4 cup vegetable oil, 1-1/2 tsp. baking soda, and I added the following spices: 1/8 tsp. cloves, 1/2 tsp. ginger, 1/4 t. allspice and 1/2 tsp Chinese 5 spice. I baked it in a tube pan for only 50 minutes. I also used a mixer instead of only hand mixing. I added a brandy glaze made with sugar, butter, half and half and brandy and I sprinkled sugar crystals on it. It was moist and delicious. I took it to a gathering and everyone loved it. The photos above are mine so you can see what it looked like.
