Easy Gingerbread Cake

I found this recipe here.( Originally adapted from Cooking Light cookbook)..This is very easy ginger bread cake with the hint of spices and has perfect level of sweetness for those who doesn't like too sweet cakes..

This cake is very light and moist ..we finished the whole cake same day :)..

Ingredients:-

  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup of molasses
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp of salt
  • 2/3 cup of 1% milk
  • 2 tsp powdered sugar (sifted)
Procedure:-

1)Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2)Beat sugar and butter at medium speed of a mixer until well blended and creamy.
3)Add the molasses and egg; beat well.
4)Combine flour and the next five ingredients, mixing well.
5)Slowly add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.
6)Pour batter into an 8 inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray; Tap pan once on the counter to remove air bubbles.
7)Bake for 22-25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
8)Cool in pan. Once the cake has completely cooled, sift powdered sugar on top.

Enjoy:)
