Gluten-Free Ginger Molasses Cake

       I know molasses isn’t necessarily one of those flavors everyone just loves, but this recipe just might change all that!  With delicious flavors like ginger and cinnamon, plus quality ingredients such as Bob’s Red Mill and Kerrygold Butter, I’m not sure if this Molasses Cake could get better!  I hope you enjoy this yummy cake, inspired by the season.

You'll need: 

1 cup sugar

2 tsp ginger

1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup Kerrygold butter, cubed and chilled


1 cup molasses

2 eggs

1 cup hot water
1/2 Cup Crystalized Ginger

       Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare a 13x9 pan by lightly coating with oil, then set aside until needed.

       In a large bowl, combine flours, xanthan gum,  sugar, and spices. Cut in butter until the mixture is crumbly. Remove one cup of the combination and set aside.
      With the remaining dry mixture, add in the molasses, eggs, water and baking soda. Beat until smooth then pour the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the crumb mixture and Ginger evenly over top.  
     Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly, until serve while still warm!
