Gingerbread

This recipe comes from my hubby's family. I had not been able to find a gingerbread recipe I liked until I made this. It is SO GOOD! Hubby's grandmother used to make this in a shallow pan. I make it in a glass pan and it comes out more cake like, which I LOVE! If you like gingerbread, I know you're going to love this too! Enjoy!

Ingredients

3/4 c

1/2 c
shortening
1
egg, beaten
3/4 c
molasses
2 1/2 c
flour
1 1/2 tsp
baking soda

1 tsp
ginger
1/2 tsp
allspice
1/2 tsp

1 c
hot water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream shortening and sugar together. Add beaten egg and molasses and mix well. Mix dry ingredients together in a seperate bowl. Add to creamed mixture and mix well. Add hot water and mix until smooth. Bake in a greased and floured pan at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes.

Note: You can use a shallow baking pan or a glass baking dish. If you prefer a more cake-like result, use a glass baking dish. I use a square glass dish or the smaller size of my rectangular glass dishes. If cooking in a glass dish, you may have to cook it a little longer.
