Molasses Cake

Molasses cake

A recipe for molasses cake.

The blackstrap molasses jar sits on our kitchen counter.

“What are you going to do with THAT?” inquired my daughter.

“Make a cake”, I said.

“Really, now?” my daughter asked.

“Yup, now,” I replied.

My daughter asked, “Why?” 

“Just because,” I stated.

“Okay, yum. I can’t wait.” my daughter said, thrilled.

Sometimes, life can be that simple. Bake a cake, just because. 

I think you should, too. Especially THIS recipe for molasses cake. It’s moist, flavourful and really hits the spot. That’s all I will say. It’s as simple as that!

Watch me make it here!
