READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by CookingMonster

This is absolutely delicious, but you have to be a mollasses and spice fan. This can be served as a dessert with either a topping of applesauce,crushed pineapple or Cool Whip.

Easy to make! Very moist but quite heavy. Thin slices are the way to go with this one.
