Directions

Stir together flour, baking soda, salt and spices in a bowl; set aside. Whisk together molasses and water in another bowl; set aside. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer on low speed until blended. Increase speed to high; beat until creamy, about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to low; add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add flour mixture alternately with molasses mixture; beat until blended. Line bottoms of three 8" round cake pans with wax paper; grease and flour pans. Spread batter in pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, until a toothpick tests clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes; turn cakes out onto racks and cool completely. Discard wax paper. For Buttercream Frosting: Beat butter until very fluffy. Add sugar and milk in small batches, beating after each addition, until very fluffy. Stir in vanilla, salt and melted chocolate. Use immediately. Assemble cake with Buttercream Frosting; chill until serving time. Makes 16 servings.
