Grandmother Hathaway's Angel Gingerbread
My mother made this pale, light-textured gingerbread at least once a week when I was growing up. It's quick, easy, and delicious served with ice cream, whip cream or frozen yogurt.
Combine 1/2 cup golden(light) molasses, 1/4 cup melted butter, 1/4 cup sugar, and one beaten egg. Beat well.
Add 1 and 1/4 cup sifted flour, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. soda, 1/2 tsp. each cinnamon and ginger.
When well mixed, add 1/2 cup boiling water and beat well.
Bake in greased 8" square pan at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Best served right out of the oven.
