a food processor is really helpful to grate the ginger, or chop it finely.
preheat oven to 350F, grease and flour a 9x9 cake pan.
- 1 1/2 wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt (omit if using salted butter)
mix in another, large bowl:
- 1/2 c. brown sugar
- 1/4 c. molasses
- 1/4 c. corn syrup, agave, honey, or molasses
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 c. minced fresh ginger
combine and melt in a saucepan
- 1/2 c. butter
- 1/2 c. water
whisk hot butter-water into molasses mixture, stir in flour just until smooth, pour into prepared cake pan and bake until done, 25-30 minutes.
