Delicious! I only had backstrap molasses, so I cut it 50/50 with brown rice syrup - had a good molasses flavor but not overpowering. That trick would probably work with any mild syrup. I also made this gluten and dairy free and it worked perfectly - it's a sign of a good recipe if it works even with substitutions.

My son and I made this for one of his former teachers, we brought this to the house for the family. They loved it so much that they were eating the lemon sauce out of the jar we put it in!I made the cake in a small bunt pan and sprinkled it with confectionery sugar. It looked beautiful, tasted great and was very moist. I would bake this again and again.
