Spiced apple muffin cake

Hi, I made this cake last week and it was terrible. In the recipe it says to use 1 level teaspoon of cloves but the cake tasted of nothing but cloves, it completely drowned all the other flavours. I had to throw it out. I was just wondering if 1 teaspoon of cloves is correct and if anybody else had the same outcome.

Spiced Apple Muffin Cake

Hello 123anna,

I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t like this recipe.

I have checked the original published recipe and the recipe is the same as the online version.

Delia’s more recent recipe for the Spiced Apple Muffins uses half the quantity of muffin mixture as in the muffin cake with half a teaspoon of ground cloves so the proportions are exactly the same and this recipe was one of our tasting panels favourites in the cake book so I guess it’s down to personal taste.

Kind regards

Lindsey

I do think it's down to personal taste and cloves for me , are overpowering yet they do add to a recipe so I just automatically reduce the amount .
