Sunset's Best-Ever Gingerbread

Yesterday I went for a lovely ride down San Andreas with Sue and Betsy. As often happens the subject of food came up and I mentioned this gingerbread. It is easy, moist, light, keeps well, and is delicious. They asked me to put it on my blog so they could have the recipe and so here it is.

Best-ever Gingerbread
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1 cup salad oil
1 cup molasses
2 tsps baking soda
1 cup boiling water
2 1/2 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
2 eggs, well beaten
Grease 9x13 baking pan and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine sugar, salt, and spices in bowl. Stir in oil, then molasses, mixing well. Stir the soda into the boiling water and immediately stir into the mixture. Gradually blend in flour to prevent lumping. Then mix in the beaten eggs. Pour into pan and bake about 40 mins., until a toothpick comes out clean.
