Jack and Jerry Cake

This is a fantastic looking cake and tasty too. It is also a Nova Scotia recipe so all the better! I have adapted the original recipe slightly.




This is what you need for the main cake mix-
3 cups of all purpose flour or self raising
1 tsp baking powder (omit if you have S.R flour)
3 eggs
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of butter (melted)
1 cup of milk
1 tsp vanilla, the real stuff folks!

Mix all of the above together until well combined
Divide the mixture into two parts

To one of the halves add -
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp of molasses, again the real stuff, preferably unsulphured organic

Place the dark mix on the bottom of a cake pan, round or square. I use a 10 inch round pan.
Then put the light mixture on the top and bake on 350 degrees until cooked. Cooking times vary but mine was cooked after 40 minutes.

Enjoy with a nice cup of tea or coffee is you prefer :)
