Does this cake look puffed up and splendid with promises of great future enjoyment,then the next day reveal itself to be mainly stale old pork? If not,then it is not a true Election Day Cake....
In the ingredient list mace is not mentioned but in the instructions it is. How much mace is in the cake?
This sounds really yummy. kV
Thank you, Dot. Good catch! We added the mace to the ingredient list. Note it is 1/4 teaspoon ground mace and 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg.
