Ingredients

1 1/2 cups (375 mL) all-purpose flour
1 cups (250 mL) whole wheat flour
2 tsp (10 mL) ground cinnamon
2 tsp (10 mL) ground ginger
3/4 tsp (3 mL) baking soda
1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking powder
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground allspice or 
1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground cloves
1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground nutmeg
1/2 cup (125 mL) packed brown sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup (180 mL) fancy molasses
1/3 cup (80 mL) butter, melted
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract
1 cup (250 mL) Milk, soured* or 
buttermilk

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Butter a 9-inch (23 cm) round or square metal cake pan; line bottom with parchment paper, if desired.

In a large bowl, combine flours, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, baking powder, salt, allspice and nutmeg. In another bowl, whisk together sugar, egg, molasses, butter and vanilla extract; whisk in milk. Pour over dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.

Spread in prepared pan, smoothing top. Bake for 45 to 55 min or until a tester inserted in the centre comes out clean. Let cool slightly in pan on a rack. Serve warm.

Tips

You can replace buttermilk by sour milk or yogourt. To sour milk, add 1 tbsp (15 mL) of white vinegar (or lemon juice) to 1 cup (250 mL) milk. Let stand for 5 min then stir.

Cooled cake can be wrapped in plastic and stored at room temperature for up to 2 days. Unwrap plastic and wrap in foil and reheat in 350 °F (180 °C) oven for about 15 min (or less for smaller pieces).

For the Adventurous: Add 2 tbsp (30 mL) finely chopped crystallized ginger with the milk and stir in 1 cup (250 mL) semisweet chocolate chips or chopped bittersweet (dark) chocolate with the dry ingredients.
