Soft Gingerbread

  • 1 cup molasses
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter & lard, mixed
  • 1 cup sour milk or buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda, dissolved in a little milk
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cloves
  • Nutmeg, grated
Beat the butter and lard, eggs and sugar together. Add milk, then the molasses, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and a little grated nutmeg. Then, add the flour and the dissolved baking soda last. Beat vigorously.

Bake in square tins for 15-20 minutes (be patient, you rascal). When a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and dry, it is done.
