looking for a spice cake recipe

Howard-2 | Sep 9, 2005 04:36 PM

I'm looking for a recipe for "spicecake" that I think is not the conventional kind of spicecake recipe.

I just made a spicecake recipe, and it came out the way it should. It was nice and fluffy--nice cake-like texture.

The recipe I'm looking for is kind of on the dense side. It's not as dense and brittle as a cookie, but it's definitely more to the dense side than the light-and-fluffy side. The inside was practically wet.

I'm thinking it *could* have to do with the amount of leavening, i.e. baking powder/soda used. (The recipe I made used baking *soda*, now b. powder.)

I first tasted spice cake with this consistency many years ago, in NYC. There was a chain of bakeshops (in the subway!) that sold individual pastries, and it had this kind of spicecake.

Anyone have any suggestions?
