Victoria’s Old-Fashioned Gingerbread



2 Cups Unbleached Flour (usually a good idea to sift)

1/3 Cup Sugar

1 Teaspoon Salt

½ Teaspoon Baking Powder

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

1 ½ Teaspoons Ground Ginger

½ Teaspoon Ground Cloves

½ Cup Melted Butter

1 Cup Molasses

2 Eggs

½ Cup Buttermilk

¼ Cup Hot Water

Preheat oven to 350° F.  Sift together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda and spices.  Stir in melted butter, molasses, eggs and buttermilk.  Beat in hot water.  Pour batter into a generously greased and floured 8 inch square man.  Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched with finger. 

Serve gingerbread with whipped cream.

*Note:  If you do not have buttermilk you can use sour milk (1 teaspoon vinegar and enough milk to make ½ cup)
