Irish Molasses Cake

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Today, I’m happy to share a simple but delicious Irish Molasses Cake recipe. It’s moist and not too sweet.  The perfect compliment to a cup of Irish coffee, whiskey or even green beer! ;)

Wishing you sweet satisfaction,

1 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground cloves
