Nothing more than gingerbread cake evokes the cosy atmosphere of sweater weather on any given chilly evening. Butter cake is modified into gingerbread cake, which includes fresh and ground ginger, molasses, and baking spices that make gingerbread so distinctive. Like fast bread, bakers can frost the cake or serve it unadorned. While gingerbread and gingerbread cake both have a gingery, spicy base, the former refers to a particular cake recipe, the latter to a wide range of delicacies. With a cup of coffee or tea, gingerbread cake is moist and tasty enough to be served on its own. For a more conventional dessert, it also goes fantastically with a layer of buttercream or cream cheese icing, a drizzle of lemony custard sauce, or salted caramel sauce. You can refrigerate gingerbread cake by tightly covering it in plastic wrap or an airtight container to store it for up to three days and protect it from drying out.

Here is the recipe:


 360 g all-purpose flour 

 2 large eggs

 240 mL (325 g) unsulphured molasses

 2 teaspoons ground ginger

 200g granulated sugar

 ¾ teaspoon salt

 240ml hot water

 2½ teaspoons baking powder

 ¼ teaspoon baking soda

 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

 ½ teaspoon ground cloves

 170 g of unsalted butter, melted


 Set the oven to 350 degrees F. A 9x13-inch baking pan should be buttered, floured, or sprayed with baking spray.

 Mix the flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, salt, cloves, and baking soda in a sizable mixing bowl.

 Whisk the molasses and hot water together in a medium mixing basin until the molasses is completely dissolved. Butter and sugar should be thoroughly mixed after being added.

 Add the eggs and vanilla last, and then whisk. Then, add the molasses mixture to the flour mixture and stir thoroughly. The batter should be added to the prepared pan.

 30 to 35 minutes of baking time, or until the middle springs back when touched.

 Place the cake pan over a wire rack and let it cool fully. If preferred, top with freshly made whipped cream and confectioners' sugar before serving.
