Easy Gingerbread Cake Recipe
This recipe is called gingerbread, but it is not to be confused with gingerbread cookies.
Combine the sugar, oil, and eggs in a mixing bowl and beat them together well. Dissolve the baking soda in boiling water and add it to the sugar mixture together with the molasses. Add the remaining ingredients and mix it together, just until all the lumps are gone. Do not over mix. Pour the batter into a lightly oiled 9x13 inch baking pan.
Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Cool the cake before removing it from the pan.
Makes about 12 servings of luscious cake.

Did You Know?...
This gingerbread cake is lightly flavored with ginger, cinnamon and cloves. I am not a huge cloves fan, but this recipe has just a bit of cloves, enough to round out the flavor nicely.
Although ginger bread is often associated with the holidays it is a perfect any time easy cake recipe.
Your family and friends will love this rich, slightly spicy gingerbread recipe.
You can add raisins if you like, or chopped nuts. Slivered almonds would be a nice addition to this recipe.
Because it is made with molasses this is a bit of a richer, denser cake. Take care not to over mix the batter. That would make it more dense.
I think you will enjoy this lovely, not too sweet cake, any time of the year. It is great cut into squares and packed into lunches.
