Gingerbread

1 ½ cups all purpose flour

1 ½ tsp baking powder

1 ¼ tsp ground ginger *( for spicier gingerbread, also add ½ white pepper, ¼ tsp cloves, and ½ tsp cinnamon.  I did this and it was great!)

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

1/3 cup unpacked brown sugar

½ cup buttermilk

1/3 cup molasses

1 egg, lightly beaten

¼ cup water

Heat oven to 350.  Coat a 9 inch square cake pan with spray.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, ginger, baking soda, and salt.

In another bowl, stir butter, brown sugar, buttermilk, molasses, water and egg until smooth.

Stir dry ingredients into butter mixture.  Pour into pan.  Bake until cake springs back when lightly touched, about 45 to 50 minutes.  Makes 16 servings for 2 points a piece
