Warm Gingerbread Cake topped with vanilla cream sauce, bananas and whipped cream! This easy gingerbread recipe could be my favorite holiday cake recipe ever!
In a large mixing bowl cream together the sugar and butter until smooth and light.
Add the egg and molasses and mix well. In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients together: flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt.
Add dry ingredients to the wet mixture and stir to combine. Slowly pour in the hot water and stir until smooth (batter will be thin).
Add sugar, butter and cream to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until butter has melted.
Bring mixture to a boil and boil, stirring frequently, for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla.
Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving over cake.
