  • Summary

    This gingerbread cake is so good you'll think that there's some kind of weird artificial extract in it– but it's just really, really good!

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
    • ? teaspoon grated nutmeg
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup, packed dark brown sugar
    • 3 tablespoons turbinado sugar (optional–you can just use regular dark brown sugar if you don't have turbinado)
    • 2 ½ tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger (this is non-negotiable if you want a really gingerbread-y taste)
    • Grated zest of 2 lemons
    • ½ cup neutral oil (I used grapeseed, as the recipe originally suggested, but canola or vegetable oil is also fine)
    • 1 large egg
    • ¾ cup stout beer (I used Red Stripe since I didn't have stout, though I'm sure stout is the best beer to use here)
    • ¾ cup blackstrap molasses
    • ? cup brewed coffee
    • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted, plus more for finishing
    • 2 to 4 tablespoons lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
