  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup molasses
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp. ground ginger
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease the NordicWare Bundt pan. Cream together sugar, butter and shortening. Beat in the eggs and molasses, stirring well. Sift together the flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, cloves and salt and gradually beat them into the creamed mixture. Pour the boiling water and lemon juice into the batter and beat the mixture well, until smooth and light. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for about 50 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the middle comes out dry.

For a real indulgence, serve the gingerbread warm, topped with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
