Very Moist Molasses Ginger Cake - Easy, just mix and bake!

Remember I said that THIS Ginger Applesauce Bundt Cake at here is the BEST Ginger Cake Ever!!!

Then why am I baking with another ginger cake recipe? errr... I can't help it because the curious me is always curious and I can't stop exploring new recipes even though I have found the best ones!!!

Then why this recipe? Being the thorough me, I have been Googling every now and then for recipes and thought that I have tried baking almost all the highly rated ginger cake recipes at here, here, here and here until I saw this newly published ginger cake recipe at here! I knew instantly that I have to bake this rustic home-style recipe and I was totally right!!!

Unlike most dense and compact ginger cakes, these well-risen cakes are made with substantial amount of cake rising agents which are present in the self-raising flour, baking soda plus vinegar added. Yet, like most ginger cakes, these are very moist with their fluffy crumbs fully packed with molasses and butter... Every slice is so hearty with its rustic fragrance and texture. So delicious!

Although these cakes are fully packed with molasses, they are not overly sweetened. And to me, there is no need to reduce the amount of sugar added further.

However, for some reasons...

If you like your cakes to taste more syrupy with less "burnt sugar" taste, you can substitute molasses with the same amount of golden syrup.

If you don't like ginger but still want to bake this must-try ginger cake *eyes rolled :p*, you can choose to omit the addition of fresh ginger or substitute this addition with ground ginger. Or if you are a ginger lover, please feel free to add as much ginger as you like as I'm adding heaps for my ginger-loving aunties.

If you are counting down to Christmas and need to find an easy recipe to bake and give, you might want to try this recipe... These cakes are extremely easy to bake as all you need to do is to mix and bake. No mixer required!!! So easy that kids can bake them too...
