Snacking Cake

 It's cold and windy here today. It was time to bake some to warm up the house and the soul. I originally saw this recipe in one of my Martha Stewart Living magazines. I love Martha, I really do, but the average kitchen probably doesn't have some of the ingredients that her recipes call for.  Being that it was cold and windy, I was not going to head out to the store to pick up some cardamom or safflower oil.  Below is my version, if you want to see the original version, click here Spiced Snacking Cake . What I used: Cake: 1/4 cup of vegetable oil 2 1/4 cups of flour 1 1/2 cups of sugar 1 tablespoon, plus 1 teaspoon of baking powder 3/4 teaspoon of kosher salt * 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon 3/4 teaspoon of nutmeg 1 large egg, plus one large egg yolk, at room temperature 1/4 cup of vegetable oil 3/4 cups of sour cream 2 1/3 teaspoons vanilla extract 3 tablespoons of whole milk **I did not have whole milk, so I used 1 1/2 tablespoons of 1% milk, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of half and half)
