Effie's Good Ginger Bread

This recipe can be baked by using a similar recipe so you will know about what size pans to use and how long to bake.

Effie's Good Ginger Bread
(As written in one of Aunt Effie's cook books)

One half cup sugar, 1 cup molasses, 1/2 cup butter and lard mixed, 1 tsp. each of ginger, cloves, cinnamon, 2 1/2 cups flour, 2 well beaten eggs, 1 tsp. baking powder, 2 tsp. soda in one cup hot water.

*Unrefined lard can be found at the Ashery Farms store on 30th St., Heath, Ohio. You want to avoid hydrogenated lard as it is not good for your heart. Pure lard is healthy in moderation.
