  • 1/4 tsp. allspice
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda

Instructions

For the cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and grease your dutch oven. Set aside. 

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cake flour, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. 

  3. In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until combined. Add in the flour mixture and buttermilk alternating in several additions, starting and ending with the flour mixture. The batter will be thick. Spread evenly in your prepared pan. 

For the crumb:
