Gingerbread Cake

I have a pregnant friend lacking in iron and I told her about this awesome cake that is full of molasses which has iron. So I promised I would post this for her today. Sorry everything is in italics and double spaced can’t seem to control wordpress today.
Upate: I soaked my flour in the warm water & butter, covered with a towel and left on the counter overnight to help decrease the phytic acid. Then added the rest of the ingredients. The cake was more moist and I liked it even better.
