    This looks fun and easy. Any secret ingredients you add to this to make it extra special? You know, family secret kind of stuff?

    This sounds soooo good, anything with molasses is good in my opinion. I don't know what shortening is, I'm just going to use olive oil. This is something I will make tomorrow morning, and then let you know how it went. Also I don't own a bunt pan, do you think I could use a spring form pan? I'm going to have to.
