Why I Love This Recipe

One of the ultimate holiday treats!


Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1 cup molasses
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup hot water


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 inch square pan.


In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and butter.


Beat in the egg, and mix in the molasses.


In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves.


Blend into the creamed mixture.


Stir in the hot water. Pour into the prepared pan.


Bake 1 hour (I found mine was done after baking for approximately 35 minutes.) in the preheated oven, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.


Allow to cool in pan before serving.

Just made this w/only changes less sugar and 3/4 c molasses. It is "the best" gingerbread ever. Wonderful light texture and perfect spices.

Mmmm this sounds delicious and easy to make :) Look forward to try this out :)
