Sharing is caring!


This is an old creation, inspired by the recipe written by AndreAnna,  which has been hidden deep in the group files for a few years.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a jar of Blackstrap Molasses in the back of your pantry somewhere, that you bought for a recipe 3 years ago. And if you haven’t heard of Blackstrap Molasses before, allow me to introduce you: It’s super good for you! Just 1 tablespoon contains 20% of our daily Vitamin B, Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Manganese and Potassium intake requirements (Wikipedia). So why aren’t more of us eating it?

Honestly, its just not that nice on its own – but – hiding it in this delicious gingerbread cake is a really great way to boost your daily vitamin and minerals intake.
