Spicy gingerbread cake
A friend passed along a copy of this recipe to me, and I was instantly excited to make it. Despite my excitement, the recipe sat in my “to make” pile for quite some time.
When I finally did get around to making it, I absolutely kicked myself for waiting as long as I did!  This cake is made up of a number of my favourite flavours:  coffee, molasses, cinnamon, ginger (and fresh ginger!!) and cloves.  It is unbelieveably moist and dense, which I adore.  I used my own quick glaze recipe (icing sugar, cream and cinnamon) to add a bit of sweetness and decoration.  I will be making this cake again soon!!  It would make a perfect addition to any holiday dessert line up or as a snacking cake to be served with coffee or tea if you have company coming over.  Click on the photo for a link to the recipe.
