Good on a cold night!

Gingerbread pudding cake!! My family and I love this recipe.

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room
temperature. I use regular butter.
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons beaten egg (from 1 egg)
1/2 cup light molasses (I use dark)
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup (packed) brown sugar
1 1/2 cups hot water
5 tablespoons butter melted.
Whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter 8x8x2-inch glass baking dish. Whisk flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and salt in medium bowl. Using electric mixer, beat 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup sugar in large bowl until blended. Beat in egg. Stir molasses and 1/2 cup water in 1 cup measuring cup. Add flour mixture to butter mixture in 3 additions alternating with molasses mixture, beating to blend between additions.Transfer to prepared dish. Sprinkle with brown sugar to cover.
Stir 1 1/2 cups hot water and melted butter in 2-cup glass measuring cup. Carefully pour over top of batter (there will be lots of liquid on top of the cake). Bake until gingerbread is cracked on top and toothpick comes clean (the bottom with be gooey), about 45 mins. Scoop warm pudding cake into shallow bowls. Serve with whipped cream.

So, I am racing to finish Squall by Thursday *muses be kind to me* and I just wanted to give you guys a little piece of what I wrote last night. A little back ground info; Harkin is a kelpie and Vanora is a this scene they have come into the town of Dundee Scotland......

He knew she was hiding something, but decided to let it go. A ball came rolling toward them and Harkin bent down to catch it only to see a small child chasing after it. “Is this yours?” He handed the ball to him.

The little toe headed boy looked up at Harkin, “Yessir. This is my favorite ball, me granny gave it to us and it's small and bouncy and it's shiny too. I love it more than me other ball cause that one was green and I don't really like green.” He stopped to take a deep breathe then turned and looked at Vanora. “Hi, what's yer name, my name is Billy, I'm five years old and I have a puppy named Paddington. He's a good dog except for when he wees on the floor, but he keeps me company and sleeps on my bed. He chewed up my green ball and that's why Granny got us this red ball but its okay cause I didn't like the green ball anyway. Hey, you have chips. Can I have one?”

Vanora looked at Billy as if he were going to bite her, then slowly took a chip and gingerly handed it to him. “Ta. I love chips, not as much as I love ice cream or chocolate or crisps, but chips are great. I like mine especially with vinegar on them, do you ever eat yours with vinegar?”

“Billy, you come her and stop bothering those nice people.” A larger female version of the boy came running up to them with a mix of anger and apology on her face. “I'm so sorry, he sometimes slips away. I think I may need a leash for him.” She grabbed the boy by the arm. “Come on child.”

Vanora's face brightened, “A leash is a good idea. That's what they put those small furry noisy things on right?”

Harking elbowed her and smiled at the woman who was now looking back at them disapprovingly. “She was just joking Maam.”

I had fun with these paragraphs....for all the non British speakers....chips are fries and crisps are chips.

Big week.

So, I FINALLY finished Cubo...blurb;

Tommi McColl moved from Manhattan to Charlotte NC to make a fresh break from her painful childhood, found the house of her dreams and opened the bookstore she had always wanted. Will her dream turn out to be a night mare or will the hot electrician hired to fix her wiring be able to save Tommi from her nightly visitor and ghostly resident?

It wasn't as long as I would have liked, but I'm proud of it. This will be an e-book and I'm going to finish Troll to be an e-book and they will be doubled up as a print.

Also being finished up is Squall. There are now only three authors involved with this anthology now...Morgan Hawke, Dahlia Rose and myself. I'm very excited about this one.

Just finished up an interview and will post the link to that on Sat. when it is available. Also, don't forget to tune into Sugar and Spice Press radio this Friday when I will be co-hosting with Sabrina Luna!

Now, I would just like to take a minute and remember my 13 year old cat Hunter who sadly left us this Saturday. He was an amazing friend who became part of my life just a few short weeks before I found out I was pregnant with my oldest son.He will be greatly missed.
