Grammie’s Prize Gingerbread




Sometimes there is nothing better than an old-fashioned recipe! This recipe was a staple in our household and I was so surprised at how much my kids love it! I make it a lot for family parties and always get asked for the recipe. Here we go!

Add hot water last.
Beat until smooth.
This batter is soft but makes a fine cake.

Put in an 8×8 pan at 350degrees for 35 minutes. I bake everything in a bundt pan, or also have a cute gingerbread man pan and silicone moulds. Using these will vary the cooking time. Watch carefully.

Serve warm with whipped cream!
