This rich molasses cake is the perfect dessert for easy at-home baking. It's made from spelt which gives it a heartier texture than a cake made with all-purpose flour and it has a rich flavor thanks to blackstrap molasses. Blackstrap molasses is a true nutrition bomb and is a great contribution to our daily intake of iron and calcium. It doesn't get much better than desserts with benefits.

Am I to assume the last ingredient into the cake is the Molasses?
I just want to be certain.

There is either problem with the listing here or I do not understand which liquids are for the cake and which for the frosting.
Please break them out!
