Gingerbread (Tom Douglas Recipe)
Gingerbread ( Tom Douglas Recipe)

2 eggs
1 cup of melted butter
1 cup of sugar
zest of one orange
1/2 cup of molasses
2.5 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of baking soda
2 teaspoons of ginger
1 cup of brewed coffee
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour in a 10 inch cake pan. In a large bowl, combine eggs, melted butter, sugar and orange zest. In another bowl, combine coffee and molasses. In another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, spices and salt. Alternately add the coffee-molasses mixture and the dry ingredients to the egg-sugar mixture. Once the batter is mixed. pour into prepared pan. Bake 40 - 45 minutes or until done. Allow cake to cool in pan 5 to 10 minutes and then remove from pan.

Note: I made this in 7 small Christmas shape pans and baked it 30 minutes.  I put some powdered sugar on the tops for a snowy effect. Delicious!

This looks very good. Would anyone like to bake some up and bring some to the gala get-together this coming week-end?

It sounds yummy!  I'll try to get Doris to cook up a batch.
