Gingerbread

A few weeks ago we constructed a gingerbread house. This particular house is our main christmas decoration and I like it! Ok, back to the real point of this post…a delicious, moist, and decadent gingerbread. The delicate cake like bread may become another holiday tradition. The “bread” was easy to make, the oven warmed the house, and a soft gingerbread scent created a cozy feeling. Without further ado here is the recipe!

Gingerbread

Ingredients:

1 3/4 c flour

1/2 c whole wheat flour

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp ginger

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp allspice

1/2 tsp salt

1 c hot water

1/4 c dark molasses

1/4 c maple syrup

1/2 c honey

1/2 c butter, melted and cooled

1/2 c sugar

1 large egg

Method:

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 9×9 glass pan.

Mix together all dry ingredients (except sugar) together in a bowl, set aside. Next, mix hot water, molassses, syrup, and honey together (I used a 2 cup glass measuring cup), set aside.

In a stand mixer combine butter and sugar, then add egg and mix well. Next add half dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Follow with half of the liquid and mix well. Then repeat.

Pour the runny batter into your pan and bake for 50 to 55 minutes. Cool in the pan on a rack for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
