A Gingerbread Cake with a jar of Organic Times Molasses

Blackstrap Molasses Gingerbread

A traditional Gingerbread Cake that is quick and easy to make.

The combination of golden syrup, cinnamon and our Organic Blackstrap Molasses results in a slightly sweet and lightly spiced flavour. We have made ours in a Bundt cake mould but it can also be made in a simple loaf tin. Either way you will end up with the lovely dense, but light texture, which is what makes this cake so delightful.

You can enjoy it with a dollop of yogurt or cream, and it is perfectly paired with a scraping of our Grass Fed Organic Salted Butter.
