  • Beat 1/2 cup butter and sugar in large bowl on medium speed until creamy. Add egg; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low. Continue beating, alternately adding flour mixture with molasses and 1 cup water, beating after each addition just until mixed.

  • Pour batter into 13x9-inch ungreased baking pan; sprinkle with 3/4 cup brown sugar.

  • Combine 1 1/2 cups hot water and 1/3 cup melted butter in medium bowl; carefully pour over top of batter. Bake for 40 to 55 minutes or until gingerbread is cracked on top and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.

Tips

*Substitute LAND O LAKES(R) Soft Baking Butter with Canola Oil right from the refrigerator.

I had never made a 'pudding cake' before so it kind of freaked me out to pour the water/melted butter mixture over my batter but the results were awesome! This is so moist and delicious and flavorful! We served it warm with French Vanilla ice cream and everyone loved it. Read More

This was really yummy! When you are making any pudding cake....you are always unsure how it will come out because of the way it looks with the water on top but it came out perfect. We are having it tonight for desert topped with whip cream. I can hardly wait! Read More

Delicious. Makes the house smell wonderful when it is baking. Best served warm or cold. Taste and texture NOT best served right out of oven. I served it with vanilla bean ice cream. My family loved it. Read More
