Christmas Day Dessert

In our family it is not Thanksgiving without Chocolate Pie and not Christmas without Orange Slices and Gingerbread Cake. This Gingerbread recipe is from the Lion House Recipes cookbook. So easy and the favorite of children and adults alike.

1/2 C sugar
1 cube butter (1/2 C)
1 egg, well beaten
1 C molasses
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 C flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp powdered cloves
1 C very hot water
Whipped cream
Cream sugar and butter well. Add egg and molasses. Beat well. Sift dry ingredients together and add to creamed mixture. Add hot water and beat until smooth (batter will be very thin). Pour into a well-greased 9x13 inch pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes, or until cake tests done. Mine never takes 40 minutes, check it early. Serve warm or cold with sliced bananas and whipped cream.
