 Gingerbread Cake Directions

 1. In a large bowl cream sugar, melted butter, molasses, and eggs.

2. Add water and soda mixture.

3. Mix together dry ingredients.

4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients.

6. Grease and flour a 9 X 13 pan, pour in batter. I use a tube pan for the decorated cake. 

7. Bake @ 325°F for 40 – 60 minutes. Check to see if the cake is done by inserting a toothpick, when it comes out clean the cake is done.
