An array of aromatic spices makes this molasses cake enticing, with or without the cream cheese frosting and brown-sugar glaze.

    Tasty, but a fork-bender. I followed the recipe, but had to bake it for more than 45 minutes because the center wasn't done yet. I brought it along to a get-together, and the somewhat puny metal forks there literally bent when used for eating this cake. Luckily I have sturdy forks here at home, with which to eat the leftovers.

    Terrible cake. I turned it into a double layer cake, making two individual cakes. It was dry, bland, and thick in the mouth. The Frosting was HORRIFIC! It tasted like I had just smothered it in cream cheese, couldn't taste the sugar at all. I've been a huge fan of Martha Stewart since I was a kid, and this was the first of her recipes I tried to back. Martha, for the first time in decades, you have LET ME DOWN.

    Tried this wonderful cake and the center was not cooked through so put back in oven for 20 more minutes.

    Super delicious!! The best homemade cake I have ever had. Perfect for the season, and great to serve as a dessert for a dinner party. Make the caramel sauce just before serving--takes about 10minutes for it to thicken.
