Cook:

25 Min

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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs. Beat until light and fluffy. Add molasses. Blend in.
2
Sift together flour, ginger, cloves, cinnamon and salt.
3
Add baking soda to water.
4
Add dry ingredients and water to egg mixture alternatively.
5
Bake at 350 degrees in a jelly roll pan for 25 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool cake before frosting.
6
To 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.
