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.
