This cake was wonderful! I've made 5 of them this summer and everyone who has tried it (although reluctantly when they know it's "Eggplant Cake") has said it was GREAT. The texture is very smooth and silky and the mild taste of spice cake is very delicious. Instead of dusting with powdered sugar, I have to admit that I put a thin layer of maple frosting on this bundt cake. My one girlfriend said, "If you ever want to make me a cake someday, make me THAT one! I'll even buy the eggplant for you." Thanks, Karen, for sharing this recipe. We'll definitely be growing eggplant in our garden again next year so we can have more of this wonderful cake!
Yum! I took half of the cake into work and got nothing but raves, especially about how moist it was. I shredded the eggplant by hand, but next time I'll do it in my food processor because it's a kind of messy job.
