Gingerbread Cake Recipe



  1. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and beat. Add molasses. Mix all well.
  2. Stir flour, baking powder and spices together in a separate bowl.
  3. Dissolve baking soda in boiling water.
  4. Add water mixture and dry ingredients to creamed butter mixture alternatively (a bit of water, a bit of dry, etc.).
  5. Bake at 350 F for 40 minutes.


(This is not a soaked flour recipe, which is the only kind I usually use. However, it's a rare treat and I needed a cake that was simple to make and guest-pleasing but not entirely unhealthy, so this fit the bill. It could definitely be made with sprouted flour, which would get rid of the issue of the unsoaked flour.)
