    It was very moist and resembled a spice cake. I made it in mini bundt cake pans.

    I love this recipe! I always make recipes my own so I did change a few things. I used 1/2 cup of cranberry juice and 1/2 cup orange juice. Also I used pecans. It made it even more delicious. Everyone loved it. I drizzled the top with powdered sugar glaze and use a bit of orange juice and cranberry juice with pecans in the drizzle.
