foxes & cake
It's still winter here, and for me anyway I always want to have the oven on around 2pm. I remember my mom would make us ginger cake on cold winter afternoons. I did the same this week & the boys who were napping and the men in the shop loved it.
While the cake was baking I started this project, not sure where it will lead but there may be chickens dancing with that nicely dressed fox.
Ginger Cake 350 25 min.
1 stick unsalted butter , cream with
1 cup brown sugar, add
2 eggs, one at a time, add alternately
1/2 c molasses ( or sorghum & honey)
3/4 c hot water
2 1/3 c total flour (mixed WW & AllP)
1/4 t salt
1 t b. powder
1/4 t b. soda
1 t ginger
1/2 t mace or cardamom
1 t cinn
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t allspice
I made 2 small cakes with this, one for the shop & one for the house. Great with powdered sugar on top.
