Classic molasses recipes never go out of style.

In a year when so many people were cooking and baking way more than usual, I was curious to see if COVID changed the kinds of recipes that you gravitated to most.

In 2020, comfort food became more important than ever. The fact that molasses recipes were among those you searched for so often made my heart sing. Molasses is sure comfort food for me and for many of you, too.
