Spice Cake (regular and low carb version)

When you can't wait for the cake to cool to frost it, you just dig in with a spoon and smear a little frosting on each bite!  Because it's THAT good!

Spice Cake (regular and low carb version)

3/4 c butter (for the low carb version I cut this down to about 1/2 cup)
1 c brown sugar (brown sweetener - like Swerve)
1 egg
1/2 c raisins (leave out for low carb/sugar free)
1/4 t salt
1/4 t cloves
1/4 t nutmeg
1/4 t allspice
1/2 t cinnamon
2 c flour (2 c almond flour and 1/4 c whey protein powder & optional 1 T coconut flour for texture)
1 t baking soda
2 t baking powder
1 c sour milk

Mix the butter and sugar or sweetener.  Add the egg.  Add raisins if you are using them.  Mix the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl and add alternately with the sour milk.   Divide into 2, greased round pounds or a 7X12 baking dish.  Bake 375 degrees for about 25 minutes until done.  Cool completely and frost if you wish - cream cheese frosting is wonderful on this cake!

In the top photo, you can see I'm scooping up the cake with a spoon and smearing a bit of frosting on it... that's because the cake was still too warm to frost but it smelled SO good I just had to dig in!!!  I did end up frosting the whole cake later though, I promise!  Ha ha.   (For the frosting I used a package of cream cheese, some So Nourished powdered sweetener, and vanilla).
