The Gingerbread Man

Back in Severna Park, there was a restaurant called The Gingerbread Man (I found a link to a Facebook page of people who miss it...cracks me up!) I am not sure if it was a chain or not, but I would liken it to a Ruby Tuesdays. The big exception: the served giant pieces of warm gingerbread with either whipped cream or a lemon sauce. The gingerbread was so good. This cake nearly replicates it because it is so large. I love the flavor and eating it takes me back to high school dates and lunches with my mom while out shopping.

½ cup white sugar
½ cup butter
1 egg
1 cup molasses
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup hot water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 inch square pan.

In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the egg, and mix in the molasses.

In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Blend into the creamed mixture. Stir in the hot water. Pour into the prepared pan.

Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan before serving.
