Gingerbread Cake

Sounds Yummy doesn't it! 
O.k, lets get started you will need the following ingredients:

 2 cups of flour 
1.5 cups of sugar 
2/3 cup powdered milk 
1.5 tsp. baking soda
 1 tsp. salt 
1.5 tsp. powdered ginger
 1 tsp cinnamon
 .25 tsp. ground cloves 
4 eggs 
2/3 cup of melted butter or palm kernel oil 
1/4 cup black molasses
 1 cup of water
 1 tsp vanilla extract 
 Instructions: Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl.
 Stir in the ginger, cinnamon, and cloves, and the powdered milk.
 In a separate bowl, cream together the sugar, molasses, and oil.
 Add the eggs to the oil and sugar mixture, and mix until it is creamy but frothy. 
While mixing, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix them just until there are no lumps.
 Mix in the vanilla,
 Do not over-mix. 
Cover the bowl, and let it set in the refrigerator overnight, 
or on the countertop for 1-2 hours.
 Bake at 145 C or 300 F for about 1 hour since oven tempretures vary more time may be required.
Allow to cool and Serve.. mmmm
