Gingerbread

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons ginger

3/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter softened

1/2 cup molasses

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

1 cup buttermilk

Powdered sugar for dusting the top if desired

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, thoroughly stir together the flour, baking soda, ginger, nutmeg and salt. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the sugar and butter until well combined. Add the molasses and vanilla. Mix well. Add the eggs, one at a time, until well mixed.

Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture alternately with the buttermilk, stirring just until blended after each addition.

Spoon the batter into a greased 9x5 inch loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.

Cool in the pan for 10 minutes.

Remove from the pan and cool.

To serve, dust with powdered sugar
