    Helpful Recipe Tips

    • Skipping the cream cheese frosting is a option. It will save on calories and this cake is delicious enough to eat without it. 
    • Pecans or walnuts? I prefer walnuts but pecans work well as you can see in the photos. Yet, walnuts just give it a flavor that pecans lack for this particular cake. Whichever you have on hand works.
    • Add liquid sweetener for more sweetness. Even with the blackstrap molasses this cake isn't very sweet due to the spices. For someone wanting a sweet cake add liquid sweetener I promise it'll do the trick.
