Lynn demonstrates how to make an Old Fashioned Gingerbread that would be great for the Holidays for a dessert or snack.
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 9" 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 in the preheated oven, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan before serving. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, if desired.
