Dr. Avelgaard's Caffeinated Turkish Spice Cake

Introduction: Dr. Avelgaard's Caffeinated Turkish Spice Cake

This is a spice cake similar to an old english ginger bread. It isn't too sweet, but has a nice flavor reminiscent of the 1800's. This cake is actually caffeinated dot to the turkish coffee, but the grind of the coffee is so fine that no one would ever suspect the presence of coffee grounds. It is good with melted butter, maple syrup, or plain.
