Gingerbread

This is a great spicy cake that goes wonderfully with a cup of coffee or hot tea!  Add a little caramel sauce to bring out the flavor!

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup butter

1 egg

1/2 cup honey

2 1/2 cups flour

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp ground cloves

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup hot water

 

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, cream together the white sugar and the butter.

Next, mix in the egg.

Add the brown sugar and the honey, mix well.

Add all dry ingredients into the bowl. Begin to mix.

Add in the cup of hot water to help blend the ingredients.

Once the ingredients have been combined, pour the batter into a greased 9×9 baking dish.

Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Serve warm with some vanilla ice cream or some caramel sauce!

I like to cut up the cake into individual servings and freeze.  That way I have one slice of cake to warm up with my coffee on a cold winter day!
