How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Spray an 8 inch square or 9 inch round cake pan with cooking spray.
  • Cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar until fluffy.
  • Beat in egg, buttermilk and molasses until well blended.
  • Combine flour, spices, soda and salt and add to creamed mixture and beat well.
  • Pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool 15 minutes in the pan then turn out of pan.
  • For sauce, combine all ingredients in a small heavy saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil over medium high heat while stirring constantly.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens a little bit.
  • Garnish as desired. Grated lemon peel is pretty if you used the juice of a fresh lemon.

    Wow, this sounds just like what my Mom used to make. For a real special treat she would top the whole thig off with a big dollop of whipped cream. I love it and must make it soon.
