  3. Add eggs, molasses, baking soda and spices, followed by flour, salt and milk. Mix until well combined and lump-free.
  4. Pour batter evenly into prepared pan, spreading it around for a perfect evenness.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the center of the cake comes out clean using a toothpick or butter knife.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool before cutting into small-medium squares.
