DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F Grease and flour an 8x8" square baking pan.
  • Bring stout to a boil in a large saucepan. Off heat, stir in baking soda; it will foam up. When foam subsides, add molasses and both sugars; stir until dissolved.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, ground ginger, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and pepper.
  • Whisk eggs, oil and grated ginger into stout mixture.
  • Whisk wet mixture into flour mixture in thirds, mixing thoroughly after each addition. Pour batter into pan and bake 35-45 min, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Cool cake in pan on wire rack for 1 1/2 hours. Cut into squares.
