gingerbread recipe

OK, here's the recipe for my friend Shirley, and anyone else who'd interested.                                   

                                    DE LUXE GINGERBREAD  

(from Betty Crocker's   1960's picture cook book)    

Mix together thoroughly: 1/2 cup shortening 1/2 cup sugar 1 egg   Blend in: 3/4 cup dark molasses 1 cup sour milk (you can sour milk by adding a tablespoon or two of vinegar to fresh milk)  

Sift together and stir in: 2 1/4 cups sifted flour 1 teaspoon soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ginger 1 teaspoon cinnamon  

mix well; pour in greased and floured 9" square pan,  bake at 325 for 45 to 50 minutes.
