Mom made the best ginger bread.
I think I will make this for Bob for his sweet tooth attack at night.
There is nothing better than warm ginger bread and whipped cream!!
In a large bowl:
½ cup sugar
½ cup shortening-Mom used Crisco
1 cup of molasses or dark Karo
1 cup of boiling water – stir and add:
2 ½ cups flour
1 teas each salt cinnamon, ginger and soda
Mix and add:
1 well beaten egg
Mix in and pour into an 8 x 12 baking pan. Bake at 350% until it tests done.
