Some cooks bake gingerbread just for the smell! SAM

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 cup molasses
1 egg, lightly beaten

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan on the bottom only and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, spices, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Add the sugar, butter, water, molasses, and egg. Stir just to blend and pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes.
Makes 9 servings.
