The Quintessential Gingerbread

This gingerbread is the ULTIMATE cold morning breakfast here at the Porter household. It's rich, moist, delectable and downright sinful when you serve it right out of the oven. Add a cup of coffee or tea and it just doesn't get much better. I pulled this recipe out today knowing Jared would be coming over. This is one of Mr.P and Jared's favorite cold weather treats. So from my kitchen to yours, a blue-ribbon winner and my all time favorite Gingerbread recipe.

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temp
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temp
  • 3/4 cup molasses, I use   Grandma's
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. ginger
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2tsp. baking soda MIXED with 3/4 cup boiling water.

WHAT TO DO
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt pan, at least a 10 cup pan. I use my Kitchen Aid mixer with the paddle attachment to cream the butter and sugar. Beat at medium speed until pale, light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides a few times during this process. Beat in eggs, molasses and buttermilk. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together all dry ingredients except baking soda. Stir it around good making sure that all of the spices are evenly distributed. Using the same measuring cup that I measured the molasses in add 3/4 cup water. Pop it in the microwave for about 2 minutes, making sure it comes to a boil, then add baking soda. Make sure all of the wet ingredients have been stirred up from the bottom of your mixing bowl. Add flour mixture alternately with the baking soda water, beginning and ending with flour mixture. The mixture will be very loose. Pour into prepared pan and bake 40 to 45 min until toothpick comes out clean.

I make a sauce that I brush on my gingerbread while it's hot. It changes from time to time. Mostly I use a little less than a 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup orange juice, a 1/4 cream, unsalted butter or buttermilk. I use whatever I have in the fridge, if I have all 3 on hand I would choose the cream. Combine all 3 in a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil, turn your burner down and let it cook for a few minutes making sure the sugar is dissolved. When the cake comes out of the oven I brush the bottom using  pastry brush. Let the cake rest 10 minute, invert onto a cake stand then I brush the rest of the cake with the sauce until it's all gone. This is one of those recipes I use over and over again. Sometimes I slice mine and freeze the slices separately. A big hit with the kids, and so convenient - they can take out however much they want and pop in the microwave for a warm breakfast or a snack. Try it sometime and let me know how it fared in your Kitchen and with your family. ENJOY!

  3. Financial losses
    Water leaks are among the problems that lead to the loss of a lot of money that is paid in the maintenance of tanks that have leaked and their walls eroded, or resort to a water leak detection company, but if the leakage is prevented from the beginning and the process of isolating the tank and the walls is not leaking from the foundation.
    Damage and problems that occur in buildings and various surfaces require a lot of money to get rid of and repair it, and thus we return to the same point of financial losses resulting from the leak.
    If the leak causes complete erosion of the building, the cost will be very high and the homeowner will have to demolish the place affected by the leak completely and build it from the beginning.

Then, combine it together for an effortless masterpiece.

While you can layer your wrist with all kinds of men's bracelets, adding a wristwatch will separate the styles and add dimension into the look.

  5. Concrete barrier blocks or jersey barriers are a simple and effective way to secure your empty premises against unwelcome visits from trespassers, vandals, fly tippers and travellers. Concrete security barriers may be placed across the access to a property, or around the perimeter to block vehicular access. We provide concrete sleepers in either 1.5m, 2.5m or 3m lengths, which can be bolted together with our state of the art interlocking system to create a virtually impenetrable concrete barrier.

    Temporary concrete road barriers are a useful tool in traffic management, to safely control traffic flows. Concrete safety barriers are a common sight in car parks, used to define entry and exit lanes and to protect traffic from straying into oncoming lanes. Concrete road barriers may be used to secure building sites and road works, protecting both the passing public and workforce within.
