Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Gingerbread Cake


I made this for dessert last night and it was a hit.

Wet Ingredients:

1/4 of butter, softened
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1 egg
1/2 c. of molasses
3/4 c. honey

Dry Ingredients:

2 1/2 c. white/ wheat flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

1 cup hot water

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325.
Whisk together the wet ingredients.
In a separate bowl whisk together the dry ingredients.
Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet and blend thoroughly.
Add your cup of hot water and blend.
Mixture will be soupy. I was a little concerned here but trusted that all will be well and it was! Don't freak out! LOL.

Pour into 9" greased square pan.
Bake for 50-55 mins or until knife comes out clean from center. It's best when eaten warm.
Top with freshly whipped cream and you have a wonderful dessert!
Enjoy!
