Gingerbread Cake

Hello everyone, I hope this day finds you and your family well. Today I am going to give you all my gingerbread cake recipe. I made this for my daughter's class a couple of weeks ago and it was a huge hit. So huge in fact her teacher told me I could make it any time I wanted to because she said " it was so delicious." So here is the recipe and I hope you all enjoy it.


1 stick of butter softened unsalted
1 cup of sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cups of boiling water
3/4 cups of dark molasses
2 1/2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons of powdered ginger


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Next grease a cake pan be very liberal with this. Combine all your dry ingredients mixing together with a fork. In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar together. From there add one egg at a time and mix together until it looks like frosting. Put your beaters away and grab a mixing spoon because you are going to add your water, molasses and your dry ingredients. Mix until all the dry ingredients are incorporated. The batter should have the consistency of cake batter. Add the batter into your greased cake pan and bake for about 35-45 minutes. Let cool completely and you can either frost it, serve it warm with some cool whip or just sprinkle it with some powdered sugar.
I hope you try this recipe maybe have your kids come into the kitchen and make it with you its a yummy holiday treat and its something you can make all year round. Make sure you stay tuned for tomorrow, I am making another recipe regarding leftover turkey. Until then, please live, laugh and love.
