Introduction

At this time of year, I like to make cakes with spices. I love the smell that spreads in the house when I bake. This spice cake is both tasty and juicy, and it can also be baked a few days before it's served. There are many good and different recipes for this type of cake, but I have chosen to compose himself. Here I have taken some inspiration from France and some from Norway :-) Hope you also like this merger.
