VG, you are too fast for me. Didn't check your blog for a day or two you already had so many recipe up :) I thought you used brown sugar for this until I read the recipe. I guess the cake look dark because of the mixed spice :)

Tks Ummi and Icook4fun. Canberra is cold and windy at the moment, and because of that, I don't get out much in the garden so I cook instead...but my waist line is not loving it! Yes it is brown because of the spice and I must admit i put in more than the recipe cos I like it a bit spicy. You could use brown sugar but you would need to lessen it I guess. I have another recipe...I'll make that the next time and will put it up on my blog. Watch out for some lemon and white choc muffins this weekend! Cheers VG
