2 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cup oil
1 1/4 cup molasses
5 eggs or 5 eggs-worth of egg replacer
5 cups flour
5 teaspoons baking soda
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
5 teaspoons ginger
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
2 1/2 cups boiling water
grated fresh ginger root or chopped crystallized ginger, if you have it

Mix everything except the boiling water together in a bowl. Add the boiling water last, and pour the batter in to a large baking dish. Bake at 350 F until a knife comes out clean. Serve with whipped cream or a citrus sauce.

Recipe from Cygnet's grandmother.
