I absolutely love molasses and the great thing about this recipe is it calls for 2/3 cup of the stuff. It came together easily and the batter was lighter than I expected. I used shortening instead of butter because all my butter was frozen. :) I also did not have any buttermilk, so I made my own.
I thought it would be fun to post a picture of the actual recipe, rather than type it out myself. :)
