This sounded delicious to me, however we apparently don't like molasses. Otherwise the recipe was really easy to make and if you are a molasses fancier then this recipe is for you. Made for Veg 'N Swap #19 tag.

I tried this recipe because I never know when the unusual will really wow me, and because I'm brave in the kitchen! I made as directed with molasses. The result was a very dark and pungent dish that didn't get firm; I even tried refrigerating it overnight. While it baked, my DH searched the house to make sure there wasn't something on fire! :0 Thanks, Elmotoo, for a fun afternoon in the kitchen and a chance to try something so very different.

My whole family liked this one :] I wasn't sure if it would be overly spicy with the 2 tsp. of ginger but it added just the right amount. Used a dark 9" square pan and cooked exactly like you indicated, but the pone turned a dark color. Cut this into 9 side servings and everyone enjoyed. Made for V*gan Recipe Swap November 2008. Great Thanksgiving Day side as well.
