Jennifer Jones' Sour Cream Molasses Cake

Jennifer Jones' Sour Cream Molasses Cake

1/2 cup shortening
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1 egg, beaten
1 cup sifted flour
1 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sour cream

Cream shortening and sugar. Add molasses; mix well. Add egg; mix well. Mix and sift flour, allspice, salt and baking soda; add alternately with sour cream to molasses mixture. Bake in two greased and floured 8-inch layer cake pans at 350 degrees F. for 25-30 mins.

Sugarless Frosting:
2 egg whites
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup light molasses

Put egg whites, corn syrup and molasses in top of double boiler. Set over boiling water. Cook, beating constantly with rotary egg beater for 7-9 minutes, or until frosting will stand in soft peaks. Makes enough frosting to fill and frost two 8-inch cake layers.
