Molasses Cake


  • 1 ¾ cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup spelt flour, scant
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger root
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup unsulfured molasses
  • ¾ cup hot water


  1. Preheat the oven to 190̊ C. Oil and line a baking tin.
  2. Stir the dry ingredients together (include the fresh ginger root here too)
  3. Stir the remaining liquid ingredients together. They won’t blend very well, but we just want them to be together.
  4. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and blend with a few swift strokes.
  5. Immediately place the mixture into the well oiled baking pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the cake tests done.
