Old-Fashioned Gingerbread Cake

By: Blair Lonergan from The Seasoned Mom
Old-Fashioned Gingerbread Cake
Old-Fashioned Gingerbread Cake

"This Old-Fashioned Gingerbread Cake has been a staple on Christmas tables for generations! It's light, fluffy and warmly spiced for an easy dessert recipe that you can make in advance. With a dollop of whipped cream or a dusting of powdered sugar, this simple treat is a perfectly festive addition to any holiday spread. I love recipes that are native to our home state of Virginia, so I turned to The Colonial Williamsburg Tavern Cookbook when creating this old-fashioned recipe. I've kept the recipe almost exactly the same as the original, with the exception of a few tweaks to the seasoning (less ginger, adding cloves, a touch more salt). While gingerbread is often made with molasses, it can also be sweetened with sugar or honey. This traditional Williamsburg version is made without molasses, and instead is sweetened with dark brown sugar. The end result is a Christmas gingerbread cake with all of the warm spices and flavor that you love, in a lighter, fluffier dessert. The super moist gingerbread cake is not as dense as other recipes that call for molasses, so I find that it's the best of both worlds! "
