Thanksgiving Gingerbread Cake
This Gingerbread Cake recipe is one that my Grandmother used for Thanksgiving dinners that has been passed down through the generations. You can add some Vanilla Ice-Cream on the side if you wish.
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Cup White Sugar
2 Large Eggs
3 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
1 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Dark Molasses
1 Cup Water
In a medium bowl, whisk the Oil, Sugar, and Molasses. Add the Eggs and whisk until smooth.
Have a large bowl to combine Flour, Ground Ginger, Cinnamon, Salt, and Cloves. Add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture and mix well until evenly combined.
Using a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Remove saucepan and add Baking Soda and stir. Add to batter, and stir until combined.
Pour into a non-stick bundt pan to prevent sticking.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes.
After the cake cools, you have the option to sprinkle Icing Sugar over the top of the cake. A nice touch.
