Old Fashioned Ginger Bread, Warranted Not to Keep

There won’t be any left to keep.

From 1911:

Half a cup of sugar, one cup of molasses (if you can’t get good New Orleans molasses use golden syrup), one-fourth cup melted butter, half a cup of sweet milk, two beaten eggs, half a teaspoon of baking powder, three-fourths teaspoon of ginger, half a tablespoon of salt, two cups of sifted flour.
Bake about half an hour.
