    OMG this looks amazing – I will have to try this!! I’ve never used molasses before though… What do you need them for in this cake? Where do I buy them and what could be a substitute??

    • Gina Fontana says:

      Hi Annebelle, molasses is a syrup-like ingredient that gives the cake a more robust, gingerbread taste. I haven’t tried the cake without it, but maybe you could leave it out if you wish? You can find molasses at your local grocery store, usually near the syrup. You may also try maple syrup, although it won’t give the cake the same flavor and I have not tested it this way. Hope this helps!
