Porter Gingerbread Cake

Porter Gingerbread Cake


1 Pkg Angel Food Cake Mix (16 Oz)
¾ Tsp Ground ginger
¾ Tsp Ground cinnamon
1 Egg
¼ Cp Canola oil butter
½ Cp Molasses
½ Cp Porter beer
4 Pkts Sweetener

Pre-heat oven to 350, spray non-fat cooking spray on a 9x9 pan. Make sure you get the sides because it will stick. If you want a thinner bar more like a cookie use 10x13 pan (which is what I did).

Add cake mix, then spices and sweetener, then egg, oil, molasses, and last beer. Mix together. It will be a bit foamy, continue to stir until creamy. Pour into baking pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes depending on oven. Let cool. Makes 12-16 servings.

Optional--crème for top: One serving, 2 Tbsp, Half and Half with a pkt of sweetener and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Heat for 25 seconds on high in the microwave, pour over the top of two servings, garnish with a mint leaf. 20 calories.

This is a yummy treat for family and friends. We have our grandkids over and do some pumpkin decorating. No need to worry about knives. We get the mini-pumpkins and bring out all of craft stuff we've collected for the year. Paint, colored pipe cleaners, glue, sparkles, stickers, and the list goes on. Sit the kids at a table and say go for it.

Then for desert the adults have the Porter Gingerbread Cake and the kids have cookies from the store. Everyone is happy!
