Gingerbread Cake Recipe


2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1/2 cup molasses

1 large egg

1/2 cup hot water


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9×9 inch square baking pan.

In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate large mixing bowl, beat the butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the molasses and egg, and mix until well combined.

Bake the cake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove it from the pan and transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Serve the gingerbread cake warm or at room temperature, topped with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.
