Gingerbread Snack Cake


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons powdered ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg (beaten)
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium size bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, ginger and cinnamon. Cut in the butter and mix into the dry ingredients to make fine crumbs. Take out ½ cup crumbs and set them aside so you can sprinkle them on top of the cake batter.
  • To the remaining crumbs, add the egg, molasses, salt, baking soda and buttermilk. Mix until the ingredients are well blended and the batter is smooth.
  • Pour the batter into a greased, parchment paper or foil lined 8×8 pan.
  • Sprinkle the remaining crumbs on top of the batter.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the cake comes out clean.
