POM Spiced Tea Cake

Last month, I was contacted by the fine folk at POM wonderful, wondering if I would be interested in sampling POM. I immediately agreed since we are huge fans of POM and it is a must in our shopping list during our trips to Costco. They sent me eight cute little bottles. We drank several of them and I reserved a few of them to try out some recipes. I made this spiced tea cake from the POM website and it tasted delicious with tea without any frosting. I also believe it might taste great with a simple cream cheese frosting. POM is an amazing source of antioxidant without any compromise on taste.

If you dont have access to POM, you could extract juice from the pomegranates and sieve out the seeds and use it in this recipe.

Recipe Source: POM Wonderful
POM Juice - 1/2 cup or juice from 2 pomegranates
Granulated sugar - 1 1/2 cups
Butter - 2/3 cups
Large eggs - 3
Whole milk - 1/2 cup

Cinnamon - 2 teaspoons
Baking powder - 2 teaspoons
Nutmeg powder - 1 teaspoon
Powdered cloves - 1/2 teaspoon
Ground ginger - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt - 1/2 teaspoon

Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
In a mixer, cream together sugar, shortening and eggs (batter should be slightly lumpy).
