Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease an 8x8 or 9x9 inch pan with cooking spray or butter.
In a large bowl, add the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
Pour in the molasses, eggs, melted butter and vanilla. Beat with a hand mixer or whisk until smooth.
Pour the batter into the greased pan. The batter will be thick, but it will bake properly.* Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool completely before frosting.
