Martha Mondays-Molasses Spice Cake






This is my first week of the group Martha Mondays. This group was created by Martha and Me. I think that I liked this group because 1) it is laid back, if you need to miss, it's ok! and 2) it is not only cooking/baking, but also crafts.



This weeks assignment was chosen by Pru of My Life-Pru Singer and she chose this cake. This cake made me excited when I saw what it was. I am ready for fall and this cake just screamed fall to me.

So, the verdict? It's ok. The cake is moist and has the right amount of spice. A couple of the girls didn't like the cream cheese frosting, because you add sour cream and they thought it was too sour. You can definitely taste the sour cream come through, but I liked it. It is not very sweet, but the brown sugar glaze gives you the sweetness that you need. Oh, and I should warn you...if you are watching your calorie intake, this is not one that you will want to make. I can just feel the bulges in my thighs getting bigger just by thinking of the amount of butter that went into this! :)

Will I make this again? Probably not. But, I'm glad I made it. So far, one of the kids likes it, and will be a great after school snack!

You want the recipe? You can find it here.

Oooh - baking and crafting? How very Martha-ish!!

I thought the cake was just ok. Mine seemed a little dry. With all that butter, I thought it should be spectacular but it was just ok. :( I loved trying it though!

It was a LOT of butter. Almost a whole pound!!!!! And for only a single layer 9-inch cake. Crazy. My kids liked the cake too so they'll be getting for snack after school as well. Welcome to Martha Mondays!

I've seen many followers of the Martha Mondays and keep contemplating joining, but I am always so busy on Mondays. Looks like they have some delicious ideas and even recipes I could make on my own.

I am a big fan of spice cakes so I may have to try this one out.

Thanks for sharing it. Can't wait to keep seeing more of your Martha Monday's!

The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.
