Ingredients

1 c
sugar
1 c
butter
2
eggs
2/3 c
molasses
3 c
flour
1 tsp
ginger
1/2 tsp
cloves
1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1/2 tsp
salt
1 c
luke warm water
1 tsp
baking soda
frosting:
6 Tbsp
brown sugar
6 Tbsp
sweet milk or canned milk
3 Tbsp
butter
3 1/2-4 c
powdered sugar
1 tsp
vanilla

Step-By-Step

1Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs. Beat until light and fluffy. Add molasses. Blend in.
2Sift together flour, ginger, cloves, cinnamon and salt.
3Add baking soda to water.
4Add dry ingredients and water to egg mixture alternatively.
5Bake at 350 degrees in a jelly roll pan for 25 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool cake before frosting.
6To make frosting add brown sugar, milk and butter to a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add powdered sugar to thicken. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Frost the cake immediately while frosting is warm. Spread as you pour. Frosting sets fast and is hard to spread otherwise. I can not see why you can not frost while the cake is still warm. It might make it easier! Just a tip.
