Grandma Diser's Spice Cake

My grandmother made this cake as an everyday dessert. My grandfather had a sweet tooth and always wanted to know "What's for dessert?" She used her Caramel Frosting on this cake as well as her Chocolate Sour Cream Cake. They owned a few cows and milked them daily. There was always Guernsey cream in the house. Great childhood memories come from these recipes!
