  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  3. Sift all dry ingredients together in a bowl
  4. Mix butter and brown sugar together until creamy, add eggs and molasses and blend until combined
  5. Alternate adding flour and buttermilk to the wet ingredients until combined
  6. Divide the batter between pans and spread out with spoon
  7. Bake 15 to 20 min. Let them cool about 10 mins. And then take out of pans to finish cooling.
  8. Filling: "I use homemade applesauce but my grandmother would use dried apples reconstituted and some people use applebutter."
  9. Once the cakes are cooled, place a cake on a plate put layer of filling, place the next cake, then filling until you have built a stack.
  10. The cake needs to sit for a while so all the filling can soak in.
