  • 1 teaspoon Simply Organic® Ground Cinnamon
  • 14 teaspoon Simply Organic® Ground Nutmeg
  • 18 teaspoon Simply Organic® Ground Cloves
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 12 teaspoon baking soda
  • 12 teaspoon baking powder
  • 12 cup butter, melted
  • 12 cup hot water
  • 12 cup cane sugar
  • 12 cup unsulphured molasses
  • 2 eggs

For the White Chocolate Mousse:

  • 2 pints heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar, or more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Simply Organic® Vanilla Extract
  • 2 4-ounce white chocolate baking bars, broken into large pieces

  • Simply Organic® Nutmeg


To Make the Cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, salt, baking soda and baking powder. In a medium bowl, add melted butter and whisk in hot water, then whisk in sugar, molasses, and eggs. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and whisk until blended.
  3. Grease and generously flour a 9-inch round cake pan. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 35 minutes. Allow cake to cool to the touch, then remove from pan. When fully cooled, cut into even cubes.

To Make the White Chocolate Mousse:

  1. Meanwhile, with an electric mixer, whip cream, sugar and vanilla for about 8 minutes until thick and smooth, being careful not to over beat. Add more powdered sugar to taste, if desired. Note that the chocolate will also add sweetness to the mousse.
  2. In the top of a double boiler, add white chocolate pieces and stir just until melted. Remove from heat and fold into whipped cream mixture. Chill mousse until ready to assemble trifle.

To Assemble:

  1. Spoon a small amount of mousse into the bottom of a trifle dish and spread evenly. Add a single layer of cake cubes, followed by a thick layer of mousse. Repeat layers with remaining cake and mousse. Sprinkle top with nutmeg.
  2. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
