Gingerbread Pudding Cake!

I make this often and people love it!

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room
temperature. I use regular butter.
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons beaten egg (from 1 egg)
1/2 cup light molasses (I use dark)
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup (packed) brown sugar
1 1/2 cups hot water
5 tablespoons butter melted.
Whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter 8x8x2-inch glass baking dish. Whisk flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and salt in medium bowl. Using electric mixer, beat 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup sugar in large bowl until blended. Beat in egg. Stir molasses and 1/2 cup water in 1 cup measuring cup. Add flour mixture to butter mixture in 3 additions alternating with molasses mixture, beating to blend between additions.Transfer to prepared dish. Sprinkle with brown sugar to cover.
Stir 1 1/2 cups hot water and melted butter in 2-cup glass measuring cup. Carefully pour over top of batter (there will be lots of liquid on top of the cake). Bake until gingerbread is cracked on top and toothpick comes clean (the bottom with be gooey), about 45 mins. Scoop warm pudding cake into shallow bowls. Serve with whipped cream.

Happy Fall.

So, it has been a while since I've posted. Between this season being so busy and our amazing regular guests....I have fallen behind.

First, I would like to extend another Birthday wish to Raina Starr. Second, to the wonderful people who come on and talk with us. We learn so much from you and are grateful for you joining us. Last, but certainly not least, our audience. You keep us going, share us with others and keep coming back for more....you guys ROCK! Thank you.

Hope you are having a great Fall and a mild Mercury Retrograde. This is Jade Sol Luna's week, so maybe he can give us some insight as to how bad it is going to be this go round. Personally, I'm a little on edge and seem to be panicky. I have strapped on the Mercury Retrograde bracelet I got for Raina....you can get one too, HERE.

We wish you all a Bright and Blessed Holiday season. I'm going to be working on a little spooky story for you all as a Halloween treat so keep your eyes peeled.

Author David Salisbury

David Salisbury is a priest of Coven of the Spiral Moon, a Firefly Tradition coven in Washington DC. The focal point of his spiritual practice is one of service, activism and respect. Growing up as a Witch starting at a young age, David uses the unique views of “next generation Pagan leadership” to create a practice that is both steeped in tradition yet colored in progress. His first book, The Deep Heart of Witchcraft, was released by Moon Books in April. His next book, Teen Spirit Wicca will be out in early 2014.

You can also catch David on his partner, Michael Brazell's show, The Psychic and the Witch. We'll "see" you, Friday night!

Birthday open mic night!!

Dorian here, it's that time of year again.....time for Birthday's (in my family, there is one 5 weeks in a row!), back to school and the end of Summer. Now, I know the latter makes some people sad, but for me, it's the beginning of Fall and that's when I really come to life and am the happiest. I love the crisp air, the changing leaves, mosquitoes and bugs going the hell away, baking, Samhain and pumpkin EVERYTHING! I will miss the fireflies, Cicadas, bats and frogs but it's a small price to pay for being able to get out of the house and play :)

This weekend I am fortunate enough to have the local Pride in Uptown and can't think of a better party to go to. If you're in Charlotte this weekend come see if you can find me and celebrate a great movement.

I would also like to give a special shout out to {Name redacted} for hitting 200 thousand likes!! They do so much to promote Cobaltraven's Magickal Notions, Desperate House Witches and Starr Crossed Creations. We are very grateful to them. They will be joining us soon for another show so keep your eyes peeled....you can also check out their former appearance HERE. Also, good luck to everyone who will be entered into their giveaway....we have donated a phone reading and custom spell by me and a beautiful Botswana Agate necklace by Raina.

So, we are doing an open mic night which are always a blast for us. We have been lucky to have some of the most amazing guests and regulars, but this is how we started, just the two of us. We also have some projects in the work that we will be announcing soon and a new central location website where you can find all of our links.

B*B,
Dorian & Raina

Dorothy Morrison

We are so happy to have one of our favorite witches on the planet joining us again! Raina and are anxious to talk to her about her recent move as she has some ideas about preparing magickally before a relocation. We always have a great time when this amazing Mojo Mistress comes to chat with us regardless of what subject we talk about....it usually gets pretty saucy ;)

In the interest of not being repetitive, please check our last blogpost where ALL of Dorothy's links are listed.

We hope to see you on Friday HERE!
