Ginger Bread Snack Cake is so light and mildly spiced that you will love it if you like spice in your cake.The cake is so soft as you can see in the pics, the texture was just like the one I saw in the orginal recipe though I got a lighter color as I used jaggery syrup instead of molasses.Other than that it came out as I saw in the orginal recipe.
Enjoy the cake with a cup of tea….bliss!! 🙂
