Let's start with De-light-ful Gingerbread with Butterscotch Sauce:
During the holidays, you couldn’t ask for a better dessert to serve than this moist, light, and delicious cake. Served with the suggestions below, it will make for a memorable ending to a holiday or cold weather dinner. So what are you waitin' for! Get a pencil and some paper and start making your grocery list! Yummy...

The Players:
1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup sugar 1 cup molasses 2 eggs 1 cup boiling water 2 1/2 cups flour 2 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 2 tsp. ground ginger 1 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. ground cloves 1/2 tsp. allspice

Preheat oven to 350°. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt ...

with the ginger and the cinnamon ...

And cloves and allspice.

And when it is all sifted together, it should look as magnificent as this. Yes, it is magnificent. Totally.

Mix together the stick of butter and the sugar, and pray it doesn't all stick to your butt.

Then add the molasses and the eggs and beat well. Now, spray your 13x9 pan with Pam or another cooking spray that you like.

Next, pour boiling water over the molasses mixture. No, Beth does not have brown water. She used the measuring cup that had the molasses in it and that way she uses up the rest of the molasses too. Pretty smart. I think so. Beth - you're so cookin' smart. That's why I love you.

Now add all the dry ingredients to the mixture.

Until it is nice and creamy like this.

Pour it into a prepared 13x9 baking pan and bake at 350° for about 40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Now your whole home smells like delicious gingerbread and your neighbors are knocking down your door. "Go Away! Go Away! This is all for Me! You can't have any!"

Oh my goodness, this is so excellent! Especially with a spoonful of butterscotch ice cream sauce over the top. And wowza does it taste great with vanilla ice cream too.

I think I'll take a bite.
Served warm or cold, and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a spoonful of butterscotch ice cream sauce is heavenly. Oh yeah baby.
Now, Run, don't walk, to your nearest grocery and buy these ingredients and bake this up! Those underprivileged who cannot cook or bake (like Susan) will be grateful that you did. "I'm grateful, Beth - very grateful - totally grateful, and yes, I'm headin' to the grocery because this looks oooooh soooo good!"
