Thanksgiving Gingerbread Cake

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.

Serves 12-15
