Grandmom's Ginger{bread}

Ok, so this is more of a modification of Gingerbread than anything. I made this because my Mom had made Tastefully Simple's Ginger Snappy Bread when we were over there last week and my son loved it, to the point that he kept asking for Grandmom's Ginger, so I tried to make it myself, and to say it was a success is really understating the reaction. I don't have a picture of the cake because, well, it got eaten and I wasn't really planning on posting this today until I saw that the MckLinky Blog Hop was for a recipe. So, here's the recipe:

Grandmom's Ginger{bread}

2-1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup molasses
3/4 cup HOT water
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg

1. Heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of 9x9x2 pan with shortening and lightly flour.

2. Beat all ingredients together with electric mixer (the electric mixer helps to break up the shortening) on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.

3. Bake 50 - 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. You can serve this plain or with vanilla pudding, however you like your gingerbread.
