Retro Breakfast: Gingerbread.
Another another recipe from this book, a nice, old-fashioned, Gingerbread cake.
Flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, ginger and salt mixed together, with a bit of shortening cut in till crumbly. Set some aside, and to the rest mix in egg, molasses, baking soda and buttermilk. Pour into a pan. Cut butter into reserved crumbs, sprinkle over batter, and bake till done.
Nice, light, gingerbread flavor. Good dense cake, perfect for breakfast...or a snack!
