Ina Garten’s Lemon Ginger Molasses Cake

I am sharing one of Ina Garten’s recipes with you today.  This recipe is in her cookbook, “Make It Ahead.”  It seems a little unusual to me but I like the idea of combining molasses and lemon.  What I really like about this recipe the most is Ina’s introduction.  As I haven’t completely retired yet, I have thought many times that I would like to be our community cake lady and always have a fresh cake baked and ready in a moments notice to offer to neighbors, friends or people in the community that might need something to brighten their day. I think Dorothy Lee has been very successful at this venture in England.

I like this cake because it makes a smaller cake and I can see how Dorothy would have a fresh cake prepared every day.  Maybe I should just start the English tradition of having tea in the afternoon here in the South.  What do you think?

I hope you have a wonderful week and I am glad you stopped by.
