I found this cake in a recipe book called Ebony...I hope that you enjoy it..The only problem I had was It said to cook it for 30 minutes and I think my oven cooked it in 20-25 mins..so check your cake..I tested mine but I thought I'd leave it a few more minutes..bad choice..It still tasted great though..
2 cups of flour 1/3 cup soften butter
1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup molasses
1 teaspoon ginger 2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 cup sour milk (I used
1/2 teaspoon allspice 1/2c milk w/1/2tea vinegar
Sift dry ingredients. Cream butter and sugar. Add beaten egg and molasses. Mix well. Blend in spices. Add milk and flour alternately. Beat well. Pour into a greased shallow pan. (I used a round) Bake at 375 degrees oven for 30 minutes. Cool & Cut. Serve with Lemon Curd, Whipped Cream or Apple sauce.
I used my doily underneath on the cake plate...
I served it with fresh whipping cream...I like it and I'm going to make it again...and I think I will make some apple sauce and whipped cream to go with it...YUMMY......I decorated it with powder sugar to make it like a Christmas cake...
