Ginger Bread Cake
Adapted from Jocooks

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ cup butter
1 egg
5 tbsp dark brown sugar
¾ cup hot water
¾ cup dark molasses (I used 2 tbsp black treacle + golden syrup to make ¾ cup)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon powder
2 tsp dry ginger powder
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla essence

Method:
Preheat oven to 160 degree Celsius and line and grease a loaf pan and keep aside.
Whisk flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon powder and ginger powder and keep aside.
Mix molasses and hot water in another bowl and keep aside (or treacle+golden syrup+water)
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar for few mins.
Add egg, vanilla essence and beat again for a min.
Add flour alternating with molasses mixture starting and ending with flour.
Batter will be thin. Pour into the loaf pan and bake for approx. 45 mins or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
Cool the cake in the pan completely.
Slice and serve as is or use cream cheese frosting or dust with icing sugar before serving.
But plain slice is just perfect!!
