Kahlua Gingerbread

Stop And Smell The Rosemary....I received a NEW cookbook! A friend brought it to me as a hostess gift for Tony's Christmas party.  I am in love with it! It is one of those cookbooks everyone should have. It's filled with neat facts and histories of traditions.  A. Must. Have! Thanks Erin!!

The first recipe I tried was Kahlua Gingerbread and it was a huge success!


1/2 cup of unsalted butter at room temp
3/4 c sugar
1/3 c dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1 large egg
1 c molasses
2 c all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1 /2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cu hot water
1/3 cup Kahlua
2 Tbsp cold brewed coffee

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease a 9x13 baking pan.  Cream butter and sugars, mix in egg, molasses, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt, water, coffee and Kahlua.  Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes.  Serve warm or cold with whipped cream.
