Comforting Gingerbread

Making your mouth water since you were a kid…

-The Betty Editors

This special holiday recipe comes from the Old Farmer’s Almanac Everyday Cookbook and will make anyone’s mouth water – any kid from 1-92. Although it’s been baked many times, many ways, try this recipe out for Christmas!


1/2 cup corn oil
1/4 cup light-brown sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup milk
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup dark molasses
2 teaspoons ground ginger


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-or 9-inch square baking pan. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oil and brown sugar. In another bowl, sift the flours together, then add to the brown sugar mixture and stir until well blended. Add the milk, eggs, and molasses and stir to blend. Fold in the ginger. Pour into the pan. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a tooth-pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Makes 9 servings.
