DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°; grease an 8-inch square baking pan and dust it with flour; tap out excess.
  • Combine the egg yolk, maple syrup, and buttermilk in a large glass measuring cup and lightly beat.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Combine the butter and sugar in a large bowl; cream with an electric mixer on med-high speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • With the mixer on med-low speed, pour the buttermilk mixture into the bowl in a slow stream, stopping the mixer once or twice to scrape down the bowl.
  • Decrease mixer speed to low; add the flour mixture 1/2 cup at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition.
  • After the last addition, mix for 30 seconds on medium speed.

  • Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  • Bake the cake until it is golden and a pick comes out clean, 35-40 minutes.
