Gingerbread Recipe Using Boiled Molasses?

I am looking for a Gingerbread recipe where you boil the molasses at the beginning of the recipe. This was the best gingerbread I ever ate and I have lost the recipe!

Hey - I just found your note. I have an old German recipe, very detailed, which calls for boiling molasses. I never understood why. As a kid that's what we always did with my grandmother. I still don't know why and am wondering if it would taste different if I didn't boil it.


So.....if you said it was the best you had. I will continue to boil it. If you are interested in the recipe, please email me.
