This Gingerbread Cake is a delightful holiday treat, combining the warm, spiced flavors of traditional gingerbread with a fluffy cream cheese frosting. The cake is moist and tender, infused with a blend of ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Topped with a smooth, creamy frosting, it's not only delicious but also visually appealing, making it the perfect centerpiece for festive gatherings.
Heat butter, molasses, and honey, then cool slightly and add sugar.
Whisk in eggs, vanilla, and buttermilk to the molasses mixture.
Sift flour, baking soda, spices, and salt. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture. Mix together to form a smooth batter.
Pour cake batter into pans.
Bake in your preheated oven until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool before frosting.
To make the frosting, beat cream cheese and butter with the paddle attachment in the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl using an electric mixer until fluffy.
Add powdered sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Beat until light and fluffy.
Lay the first cake layer on your serving platter. Apply a generous amount of frosting on top. Lay the second cake layer and top with frosting. Add the last cake layer and finish by frosting the entire cake, ensuring the sides are covered
