    It turned out just fine. Not dry, but a bit too dense, even for a cake. My rating is likely a matter of what I was expecting, I don’t think I’ll make it again. However, the directions are written very well, and I love the tweaks to make it a little healthier than the average cake :) I thought a tsp of nutmeg was a bit much because I use freshly grated nutmeg, so I went lighter and added a pinch of ground cloves and cardamom.
