This is one of the moistest most delicious gingerbread cake recipes I have ever tasted. If you eat it warm with whipped cream it takes like a fluffy cake, but if you let it sit overnight, it becomes almost a gingerbread pudding! One of my favorite holiday recipes! —Megan Mitchell
What You'll Need
Packed Brown Sugar
1 1/2 cups
All Purpose Flour
Preheat oven to 350°.
Grease a cake pan with cooking spray. Place a piece of parchment into pan. Make sure it reaches up all of the sides. Grease the paper.
Cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in molasses and egg.
In another bowl, sift together flour, spices and salt (not the baking soda) and then add mixture gradually to butter and sugar mixture.
Dissolve baking soda in the hot water, and gradually add to batter. Mixture will be thin.
Pour batter into pan and bake for 40-45 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean and the cake is light and springy.
