  • Prep time: 20 Minutes
  • Cook time: 45 Minutes
  • Yields: 12 servings


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1 stick unsalted butter

  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup molasses

  • 1 cup Oikos® Plain Greek Yogurt

  • Confectioners’ sugar


  1. Heat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease and line a 9x9-inch baking pan with parchment paper.

  2. On a piece of wax paper, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt and spices.

  3. In an electric mixer equipped with a paddle, on medium high-speed, cream the butter until light. Slowly add the sugar and mix until fluffy. Add the eggs and mix well. Add the molasses and mix to combine (the mixture will look curdled).

  4. Reduce the mixer speed to low. Add the flour mixture and yogurt alternately, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Pour the batter into a pan and bake for 45 minutes or until firm to the touch.

  5. Cool the cake on a rack, then unmold and dust with the confectioners’ sugar.
