Yet another spongy lite cake, this cake is a lighter version of my Honey spice cake. This is lighter by the usage of only egg whites in place of whole eggs, making the end product airy n moist.

The spices used gives a distinct aroma n flavour to the cake, taking it a point above the regular pound cake.

So here’s the recipe for tasty ‘Spice pound cake’.
