I have loved just about every dessert that has ever crossed my path, but this cake is one of my all time favorites. If you love gingerbread, you’ll love this cake.
Apple Gingerbread Cake
- 1/2 Cup brown sugar
- 1/2 Cup butter
- 1 tsp. ginger
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 Cup molasses
- 1 Cup sour milk – 1 cup milk with 1 Tbsp of white vinegar added to it. It will bubble and curdle, but that is what is supposed to happen. Allow to sit for a few minutes.
- 2 Cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 2 of your favorite baking apples. Peeled and cut into 8-10 slices. I used an apple slicer.
- Homemade Whipped Cream
Mix the sugar, butter, ginger, cinnamon and salt until creamy. Add 1 large egg and beat until fluffy. Add molasses and sour milk. Mix well. Add flour and baking soda and mix until combined.
Prepare a 9 x 9 glass pan with non-stick baking spray. Layer the pan with the apples.
This cake smells so good. You want to dig in as soon as it comes out of the oven, but WAIT, something is not right.
DO NOT eat this cake without the HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM. Well, I guess you could, but why?
