This cake is super easy to make and it is very moist and yummy. It can be made into cupcakes or round cakes if desired, just adjust baking times according to the instructions on the box. I like my cake spicy, so I added a little extra allspice, ground ginger, and ground clove to my cake. I don’t like really sweet frosting, but if you do, just add more maple syrup or brown sugar.
