In a separate mixing bowl, add

Dark Brown Sugar (1/2 cup)
, whisking to combine until mixture is well combined. Add in
Unsulphured Mild Molasses (1/2 cup)
Honey (1/4 cup)

Buttermilk (1/2 cup)
Add the dry ingredients mixture into the liquid mixture and gently stir into the liquid with the whisk until just combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes. The top will be a deep brown and a toothpick inserted into the center will come out clean.
Allow cake to cool in the baking tin on a cooling rack for at least 10 minutes before removing the cake to continue cooling outside of the tin until it reaches room temperature.
Slice the cake into 9 even squares, setting the cake slices on a parchment-lined plate or storage container. Store covered at room temperature for at least one day to allow stickiness to develop.
Serve plain, dusted with powdered sugar, or with soft whipped cream and soft candied cranberries.
