I bought an Amish cookbook, from some missionaries at our church, called “Homemade Goodies,” and this recipe for Gingerbread instantly appealed to me. Especially this time of year when the temperatures are getting cooler, a slightly warm baked dessert just seems perfect, and it was so easy and scrumptious too!
Here is what you need:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
Mix dry ingredients together right in your mixing bowl.
1/4 cup room temperature butter
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup molasses
Beat for two minutes, and pour into a well greased 9 x 9 inch pan.
Bake for around 30 minutes at 350 degrees or until top springs back lightly when you touch it in the middle.
It is best served warm, cut into squares, and topped with whipped cream, regular or cinnamon cream.
This was so tasty and satisfying; I will be making it again for sure!
Hope you enjoy!
