Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Lynn demonstrates how to make an Old Fashioned Gingerbread that would be great for the Holidays for a dessert or snack.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 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
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup hot water
  • Confectioners' Sugar for sprinkling, if desired

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.
