Step 1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F

Step 2

Melt the molasses, shortening and ginger together and blend well.

Step 3

When thoroughly melted and warmed, beat for 10 minutes.

Step 4

While the original recipe as printed omits the use of the sour milk, let’s assume it’s added before the flour.

Step 5

Dissolve the soda in 1 tablespoon boiling water and add to the molasses mix.

Step 6

Then add just enough of the sifted flour to make a stiff batter, beating thoroughly and vigorously.

Step 7

Pour into several greased shallow pans and bake for ten minutes in a quick oven.
