Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and line a 9-inch cake round with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a standing mixer or using a hand mixer, mix the
Butter (1/4 cup)
Brown Sugar (1 cup)
Vanilla Extract (1 tsp)
until light and fluffy. Add in the
and mix just until combined.
In a medium bowl, whisk the
All-Purpose Flour (1 1/2 cups)
Baking Soda (1 tsp)
Salt (1/2 tsp)
Ground Cinnamon (1/2 tsp)
Ground Nutmeg (1/2 tsp)
Ground Cloves (1/4 tsp)
Add to the butter mixture and mix until just incorporated. Stream in the
Buttermilk (1 cup)
while mixing on low.
Once combined, pour into the prepared baking dish and bake for 30 minutes or until the center comes out clean when inserted with a toothpick.
In a medium bowl, beat the
Butter (1/2 cup)
Molasses (1 tsp)
Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1 cup)
together until smooth, add in the
Cream (1 Tbsp)
and beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Once the cake has completely cooled, dollop the frosting onto the top of the cake and spread evenly on the top.
