Shaker Gingerbread

I found this recipe while on vacation several years ago. Most of the time we thing of gingerbread around the Christmas holidays, but add some fresh cut-up strawberries and some whip cream and you I have a great Summer dessert! It goes really great with a tall homemade iced Lemonade!

1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup-molasses

1/2 cup sour cream

Cream butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer. Add eggs and mix well. Stir in molasses by hand. Place dry ingredients in separate large bowl and blend with a whisk. Add dry ingredients ton creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, starting and ending with dry ingredients. Mix by hand. Bake in a greased square pan at 350 for 45 minutes!
