It is the one I got from a novel I was reading. Believe it or not it turned out to be a legit recipe.
Anyone who knows me or my mom knows that we hardly ever follow a recipe to a t.
Substitute dried pears for dried apples.
Kinda surprised we had dried pears. Go figure.
The book said use 3 cups of molasses. I didn't want to use all the molasses we owned.
(Looks gross huh)
(I used a bunt pan just cause it was convenient)
As to the taste....if you like molasses then you will LOVE this cake.
If you don't then...... don't bother.
*I ended up adding more baking soda to the batter cause it seemed insufficient for the amount of batter I had. It was a good move.
