Hi, I’m Heather from Well Floured (formerly French Press) and I am so excited to be back for another year of Bake Craft Sew Decorate.
Holiday time is a busy time fore everyone. My family is especially busy at this time of year with our kids’ birthdays being exactly 2 weeks before Christmas and two weeks after. We’re running around like chickens with our heads cut off from from Thanksgiving through January 8. But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy sitting back, relaxing, and trying to take in the beauty of the season.
That is why I love a double duty recipe, and this molasses pound cake is just that. It does double duty. Sliced, toasted, and smeared with butter or cream cheese, this molasses cake makes a delicious breakfast. Topped with powdered sugar, whipped cream, or even a scoop of ice cream this molasses pound cake is an equally amazing dessert worthy of any holiday gathering. It is two great recipes in one leaving you extra time to enjoy the time with family and friends.
These pretty little loaves also make great neighbor or teacher gifts 🙂
I happen to love molasses, and use it weekly in my favorite molasses bread. But when paired with spices it always makes me think of winter and holiday time. If you aren’t a huge fan of the flavor, I suggest looking for a light molasses to use in this cake in place of a dark molasses i used in the recipe.
