    Gingerbread

    2 1/3 c. self-rising flour
    1/3 c. sugar
    1 1/2 tsp. ginger
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1 c. molasses
    3/4 c. hot water
    1/2 c. shortening
    1 egg

    Grease and flour a 9x9 in. pan. In a large bowl combine dry ingredients. Add remaining ingredients and beat on low speed with an electric mixer for 3 minutes. Pour into baking pan and bake for 45 minutes at 325. (preheat oven as always!)

    When Halloween rolls around and the skies are cloudy and cool, this will warm the cutest little pumpkins! (hubbies too!) The house will smell so welcoming!

    You can add more cinnamon if you like, or more ginger. That is one thing about gingerbread; you can make it your very own, and the magic it lends to the atmosphere in your house will truly be memorable.

    And it needs just a dab of whipped cream on a warm cake to make it perfect. Comfort food.
