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? 

Yup, now.

Why?

Just because.

Okay, yum. I can’t wait. 

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

I think you should, too. Especially THIS cake. That’s all I will say. As simple as that!

Watch me make it here!
