Tried a test run today, the batter didn't really come out as expected, WAY too soft, so I had to improvise where I could.
Since I've never tasted or even seen soul cakes before I made several different batches from the same mix to test it out. Size, baking time, ect. and had my taste tester, aka Mom, try them out.

Image

The larger ones obviously didn't turn out well, took too long to bake inside and as a result the outside came out somewhat, uneven.

The lighter ones, while soft and fluffy, felt undercooked.
My mom liked the darker ones best, the spices had a stronger flavor, were crunchy and had a nice tone.
The middle ones were also pretty good with crunchy edges but softer centers.

What I'd like to know is, what exactly is this supposed to be like? Crunchy? Soft and fluffy? Cookie? Cake?
Is it supposed to be a spice biscuit like ginger cookies?

Okay scratch that, I did a bit of searching online and figured out where I went wrong.
I'm not used to using cups down here and messed up the conversion, found another recipe like this one with the measurements in grams and turns out I was 100g short on flour, figures.

Will try another batch tomorrow and see how it turns out.

Here we go, round 2. Turned out much better this time around.

Image

This is the recipe I used if anyone is interested. It's the same as what Mags posted, cept the measurements are in grams for those who don't use cups.
I doubled up on the spices and added 200g of sugar instead of 170g since my Mom mentioned she could barely taste the spices with yesterday's batch. It depends on how strong your ground/powdered spices are though.
Overall it turned out pretty nice, sweet, crunchy, with a hint of spice.

Only thing to note would be remember to use a small egg since it is a cookie.
