    Do you remember this Spice Cake?

    When I was little (in PA/Ohio 1950/60's) we used to get a spice cake (not sure it was called that) from the grocery store that was a dense spice cake with cream cheese icing on it? The shape was about 3x8" on cardboard...probably came form the bakery section. Does anyone remember this?

    I would like to find a recipe that is like that...so if you know what a I want and have a recipe...can you share it please?

    Our wedding cake was a Spice cake ..that was over 36 yrs. ago.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place...the End Times.

    I grew up in Chicago in the 50's/60's, and loved that cake! It was made by the Dolly Madison Baking Co. and was called spicecake.

    I remember it well, it was sold at the local A & P and it was called Spanish Loaf, it was very good. Probably you would find more cake versions with Spanish Bar Cake and I'd Google A & P's Spanish Loaf first, then Bar Cake. There is also a copycat recipe site you may find it under.

    I'm drooling just thinking about the Spanish Bar cake we used to buy from the A & P Store in the 1950's. Now, I must leave and hunt up the recipe per your suggestions... Thanks :-)

    Check this one out. It says it's from the Pittsburg Tribune. If so, it may be close to what you are looking for.

    While we are strolling down Memory Lane, any of you ice cream makers come up with a copycat version of Isaly's Maricopa Ice Cream? It had a beige color from either a swirl of Caramel or Butterscotch and had a salty-sweet flavor.

    I remember Isalys too! Loved that their ice cream was tall ans skinny! I always had rainbow sherbet...so I don't recall the one you want. That is another good memory for me!!
