As you can see, I have two (2) names for this dessert. Natives call it Syrup Pudding. Other nationalities call it Molasses Cake. The flavor resembles a moist, ginger snap cookie. Once again the recipe was passed down from generation to generation. This is one recipe that is good anytime of year, but it is delicious in cold weather with coffee, hot tea, hot apple cider, or even a cold glass of milk. DELISH!!!
