Serves 9
Vegetarian
Ingredients: 

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp. ground ginger

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ground cloves

1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp. ground allspice

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

8 tbsp. butter, melted and cooled to room temperature

3/4 cup molasses

3/4 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup milk

1 egg, slightly beaten

1/2 cup whipping cream

1 tbsp. granulated sugar

1/3 cup Stonewall Kitchen Pumpkin Caramel Sauce

4 oz. mascarpone cheese, room temperature

Instructions: 

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together first 8 ingredients through salt. In a separate large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer on low speed, combine the butter, molasses, brown sugar buttermilk, milk and egg until uniform; slowly add dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Pour batter into greased, floured 8x8" baking pan and bake in preheated 350° oven until the top springs back when lightly touched and the edges pull away from the pan (30-40 min.). Whip cream until soft peaks almost form; whisk in sugar; move whipped cream to a medium size bowl. Whip together Stonewall Kitchen Pumpkin Caramel Sauce and mascarpone; fold into whipped cream.

To Serve: Serve gingerbread warm or room temperature with a generous dollop of Pumpkin Caramel Mascarpone Cream.
