This is another and simpler American gingerbread made without molasses syrup.


  • 6 ozs. of flour
  • 2 ozs. of butter
  • 7 ozs. of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 gill of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of ginger
  • 3 teaspoons of baking powder.


Proceed exactly as in the foregoing recipe, but omitting the molasses. Spread out very thinly in well-greased tins, and bake in a moderate oven for 25 to 30 minutes. When done, sprinkle with sugar and cut in squares or diamonds.
