Adapted from the Smitten Kitchen recipe which was adapted from a long line of other recipes going back to Claudia Fleming. Best gingerbread I've ever had. Everyone on the internet says you need to use good dark molasses (not blackstrap). They're wrong I tell ya. Dark molasses may be better, but it's hard to imagine, because this cake is delicious, and I used unsulfured blackstrap molasses. So maybe use the good stuff if you can, but don't let that keep you from making this cake.
