1 1/2 C flour
1 C sugar
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 C cold butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 C vegetable shortening
3 tablespoons molasses
1 C buttermilk
2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 300F. Coat bottom only of a 9-inch square pan with cooking spray. Combine flour, sugar, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter and shortening to make a crumbly mixture. Scoop out ¼ cup and set aside.
Add egg and molasses to flour mixture and stir. Combine buttermilk, baking soda and salt. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture; stir well (there will still be a few lumps). Pour into pan; sprinkle reserved flour mixture evenly over top.
Bake 30 minutes. Increase temperature to 350 and continue baking 18 to 20 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Sometimes,I live in my own little world, but it's okay because they know me here.
