The Quarantine Kitchen Episode 5 Gingerbread Cake (May 1, 2020/ KTVF)
"Mostly for me I kind of make a comfort food. I baked a few times while in isolation," said Benson. "It's not super sweet which is kind of what I like about it. You can just kind of have it and it's pretty easy to make."
Here is the ingredients list:
-2 cups of all-purpose flour
-1 teaspoon of baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon of salt
-1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
-1 1/2 teaspoons of ground ginger
-1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves
-Zest of 1 orange
-1/2 cup of butter
-1/2 cup of brown sugar
-1/4 cup of white sugar
-2 large eggs
-1/2 cup of molasses
-1 cup of milk
-1 1/2 cup of confectioners sugar
-3 tablespoons of orange juice
Whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and the zest of an orange.
Mix the butter and the sugars until it is creamy. Then add one egg at a time, beating each one. Then add the molasses.
Alternate between the dry goods and the milk, mixing in both.
Mix those, and then pour it into a square pan. Then bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
Next we make icing with the confectioners sugar with the orange juice and spread it on top of the cake.
