Great Grandma Redfield was born 1820 in Plainfield NH. I have never seen another gingerbread recipe like hers and the intense ginger flavor and crusty top with whipped cream on it is wonderful!!
1 cup dark molasses
1 cup sour cream
1 handful brown sugar (about 1/4 cup)
1 teaspoon salt
1 generous teaspoon soda dissolved in a little water
2 cups cake flour
1 dessert spoon ginger (about 1 tablespoon)
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Add molasses to sour cream. Mix thoroughly, then add brown sugar, salt, and soda and stir until well mixed. Sift 2 cups cake flour with ginger and add to mixture. Put into a greased 8 x 8 pan and bake about one hour. Serve warm with whipped cream.
