Why I Love This Recipe

Just a basic recipe that's been around for a long time...

I've added more ginger.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 C cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3 tsp ground dried ginger
1 tsp ground fresh ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 C shortening
1/2 C sugar
1 egg, well beaten
2/3 C molasses or dark syrup
3/4 C sour milk or buttermilk


Sift flour once and measure 2 cups.

Add powder, soda, spices and salt and sift together 3 times.

Cream shortening until fluffy.

Add sugar gradually till light and fluffy.

Add egg and molasses, stir to incorporate.

Alternating flour and milk. Beat after each addition till smooth.

Pour into a pan lined with Reynolds parchment paper.

Bake @ 350' for 75 minutes.

Serve with whipped cream or lemon sauce. (make your own, or heat lemon curd over boiling water till it 'melts' - serve warm)
