Cold Winter, Warm Kitchen
Nothing much cozier than the scent of something sweet emerging from the oven.
Warm wishes from our kitchen to yours!
SPICY MOLASSES BREAD
2 cups all-purpose flour. 1/2 cup oil
2 teaspoons baking soda. 1/2 cup molasses
1 teaspoon salt. 1 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cloves 2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon ginger Whipped cream ( optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Oil one 5" x 9" loaf pan.
Whisk together dry ingredients and set aside. Pour oil into mixing bowl and use same measuring cup for molasses for easy removal. Add boiling water, then sugar and mix well. Lightly beat eggs before adding to mixture and mix well. Gradually add dry ingredients and blend until just combined. Pour into pan and bake from 50-60 minutes. Toothpick inserted in center should not be wet but do not over-bake. If loaf springs back when you finger test it, remove from oven. Let cool in pan 10 minutes and remove onto cooling rack. Bread slices best when cooled but is delicious warm with a dollop of whipped cream. Enjoy!
