    I don’t know why, but I think of Molasses as a fall / winter ingredient. It’s not. But for me, I most commonly use it during the fall or winter. Here we have a Molasses Cake. I tried researching the origins, but came up short. I asked around, and supposedly, back in the day, some wise person who had no sugar for a cake decided to use molasses instead. Just like that, Molasses Cake was born. I don’t know if it’s true, but that’s the story I’m going with! This cake is very simple to make, and is actually moist and delicious. So on a day you’re feeling “Slow as molasses”, make a Molasses Cake!
