Molasses Spice Cake

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F degrees. Grease and lightly flour three 8x2-inch round cake pans. Set aside. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and cloves; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar; beat until well mixed. Beat in eggs until fluffy. Beat in molasses on low speed.
  3. Alternately add flour mixture and milk to beaten mixture, beating on low speed after every addition just until combined. Divide the batter evenly into prepared pans, spreading evenly.
  4. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely on rack.
