Spiced Apple and Cider Cake

This is delicious. Its Spiced Apple and Cider cake, a Delia Smith recipe. It worked well gluten free, using Doves Farm gf flour and baking powder. Highly recommended. I did replace the quanity of cloves though with mixed spice as I personally find cloves a bit overpowering but the mixed spice worked well.

Here is the link to the recipe:

You are right GQ. Between the cake and the topping, that is three-quarters a teaspoon of ground cloves. McCormick's puts out a mixed spice for apple and one for pumpkin pie. I would go with either one of them. I am not fond of clove flavor. Both of the pie mixtures have the same spices as this recipe, and the pumpkin having more. A bit more spicier than the apple mix, but not at spicy if there were cloves.
