Greek Spice Cake #SundaySupper

 I am so excited for the opening of the Our Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.  The first one was so delightful.  A group of women friends plan to see it when it opens!  This spice cake is a Greek classic, served at one of the restaurants we like here in St. Louis.  For our Easter holiday, I added a cup of finely chopped carrot to the batter.  This cake is delicious without any frosting, but my family will expect a classic cream cheese frosting on it.  Would yours?

  1. What a yummy cake! I'd never say no to a dessert containing glazed walnuts. My family would want frosting, but I didn't frost my cake, either and they managed to eat it :)

  2. I love the spice combo in here!

  3. Sounds like a great cake!

  4. I love the combination of spices in this cake. I think the addition of buttermilk is great too - it always makes a cake so moist. I think the cake would be good with or without icing. I am wondering what a drizzle of honey on the cake would would taste like?

  5. Terri - You are a master baker! Your spice cake looks sooo good. I love your addition of Greek Easter carrots too =)

  6. Looks like a cake packed full of delicious flavors!

  7. This looks amazing! Love the spice combo.

  8. The glazed walnuts really caught my attention. Wonderful!

  9. This sounds incredible!
