Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease an 8″ x 8″ pan or 8″ round cake pan. Set aside.
Sift all dry ingredients together and set aside.
Blend wet ingredients well using a mixer. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture to wet ingredients blending well before adding the next third. Mix well, the add the final third of flour mixture. When all ingredients are well blended pour batter into greased pan. Smooth batter with a wet spatula.
Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until gingerbread bounces back when touched. (If you test this cake with a toothpick, the toothpick will come out clean before the cake is actually done.)
Freezing Directions: Allow cake to cool completely. Wrap well, label and freeze. If you would like to dust the cake with powdered sugar to decorate, do so after cake is thawed and right before serving.
