What Are Some Good Recipes to Make With Molasses?

Good Questions

Q: I have a lot of molasses left over from making a batch of gingerbread cookies over the holidays.

What else can I make with molasses that is NOT reminiscent of Christmas? Thanks!

Editor: Amanda, this is super old-fashioned, but I love molasses on cornbread! It's such a treat, especially for breakfast in the wintertime.

Also, it's a little hard for me to think of gingerbread as just for the holidays; a damp, dark gingerbread cake is welcome any time at my table. Why not make something like this pear cake?

You can also just make brown sugar with a little molasses and white sugar:

Readers, any more suggestions for Amanda and all her molasses?
