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!

How to Make Gingerbread

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cream 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.
