How to Make Gingerbread
- 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.
