Ginger Molasses Skillet Cake: serves 8+
2 2/3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp table salt
4 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar, firmly packed
6 oz butter
1 1/3 cups molasses
1 1/3 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 lb. butter, cut into 8 slices
dark brown sugar

Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. Set aside. Place the brown sugar, 6 oz butter, and molasses in a saucepan and heat until the butter is melted. Stir the sugar and butter mixture into the dry ingredient mix and add the milk and vanilla.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray eight 61⁄2-inch skillets with cooking spray or two medium/large cast iron pans. Place a pat of butter, a teaspoon of brown sugar, and a teaspoon of molasses in each skillet. Place the skillets on baking sheets and heat in the oven until the butter is melted. Remove the skillets from the oven and fill with the batter. Bake the skillets on the baking sheets for approximately 20 minutes.

Serve warm with a big scoop of rich French Vanilla Ice Cream.

Pairing Suggestions: Vanilla-bean infused Cognac, Tawny Port, or coffee. At Christmas, eggnog is the perfect indulgence!!

Enjoy thoroughly 

It's not beautiful, but trust me, a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and a little powder sugar dusting goes a long way.
