1 1/4 cups flour
1 Tablespoon caraway seeds
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon baking powder


Cream the butter and sugar together. Beat in the eggs. Beat in the dry ingredients.

Pour into a greased and parchment-lined 7" round cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the middle comes out clean.

Cool for 10 minutes then invert onto a serving plate. Serve warm with powdered sugar sprinkled over it, or serve at room temperature.
