SORGHUM CAKE WITH CINNAMON SAUCE

Sorghum Molasses Cake with Cinnamon Sauce - CopyI use sorghum to make this cake but I am sure you could use any kind of molasses you happen to have on hand.

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1 cup molasses
2  1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1  1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup hot water
Cream together the sugar and butter or margarine.  Add egg, and beat well.  Mix in molasses.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well.  Pour into 9 inch sprayed pan. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 55-60 minutes. Cool and serve.
 
The sauce I put over this cake can be used over any kind of cake or gingerbread.
 
Cinnamon Sauce
 
3/4 cup butter or margarine

  1. My mom use to make this but she cut the layers in half and then she would spread home made apple butter between all of the layers and topped it with apple butter. It was soooo good… Everybody loved it.

  2. I thought you might like to know that someone is selling your recipe on ebay

    • Hi Joey, Unfortunately, people copy my recipes all the time. I see them on Pinterest and other blogs. There is nothing you can do about it because a recipe cannot be copyrighted. There is no way to prove it is your recipe. Thank you for your concern. I appreciate that you know it is mine and did let me know. A lot of people do give you credit if they use your recipe and that’s a good thing. Have a great evening.

  3. I made this cake today and it is wonderful! This recipe is deifnitely a keeper. We loved the cinnamon sauce and imagine all sorts of uses for it. The cooking temp and length of time was a little too hot and too long for my oven, so I’ll note that on the recipe I save.

  4. This looks good. Yum!

  5. That looks delicious! I would need to use regular molasses since they do not sell sorghum molasses here, but I imagine that would work. I also want to try your pumpkin cake. It’s a good recipe to try for Thanksgiving. Thanks Judy!

  6. I’m guessing very moist and delicious!!! Wonderful recipe for this great fall weather. Thanks for sharing it….
