Maple Spice Cake
Wednesday, March 26, 2008
As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

It's definitely time for a recipe.. don't you think! Nothing like some wonderful Maple Spice Cake on a cold, gloomy day.. that was yesterday. And today it's nice and sunny (gotta love Canadian weather, alhumduliLlah).. so I enjoyed it with some Chocolate Cookie Dough ice-cream. Oh it's soooo yummy!.. and who can resist anything with maple syrup in!!

And you don't need a mixer to make it.. how nice is that.

Serves: Me alone.. or 10 people (I suppose)

1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 pinch cayenne (yes.. you read right)
2 eggs - lightly beaten
2/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses

1/2 cup icing sugar - sifted
1 tblsp maple syrup

:: Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
:: Grease a 9-inch square baking pan.
:: Sift dry ingredients. Set aside.
:: In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, maple syrup, oil, and molasses until well blended... because of the molasses, this may take a little longer.
:: Add egg-mixture to dry ingredients.. I used a whisk to get it all mixed in and smooth.
:: Pour batter into the prepared pan.
:: Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (approximately 30 minutes)
:: Cool in pan, remove and glaze.

:: For Glaze: Add maple syrup to icing sugar, and enough water to make a glaze.

Serve alone, with whipped cream, or with ice-cream.

Wa'alaykum as-salaam wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dearest sisters,

Jazaki'Allahum khair for visiting my side of things. Sorry for not checking your blog in a while.. busy, busy this end.

Maryam, I thought the same thing when I posted it.. that there are going to be lots of people who don't have some of the ingredients. I'm sorry. Insha'Allah one of these days I'll post something which we could all make.

JaTM, insha'Allah you are able to try it out. And please let me know how it goes.
