If you are like me, you associate gingerbread with Christmas, but it’s not really. Gingerbread is a sweet and moist cake and often served with fresh whipped cream or whipped cream cheese frosting, if desired. A friend a long time ago made me a gingerbread cake for my birthday and it was delicious!

Bake as needed, I’m guessing 30 minutes at 350.


1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup lard

1 cup molasses

1 cup sweet milk

1 dessert spoon soda

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

A little black pepper

4 cups flour

Bake as needed
