This is what my grandmother used to make. Delicious not too complicated. It's back to basics flavor accompanied by some fresh made whipped cream is not to be compared to. A classic. Thank you McCormick for keeping it sacred.

Flavorless, cheap tasting cake. Needs at least another egg for texture, double the spice, and a teaspoon of clove. Rum soaked raisins and toasted walnuts might help.
