9 ounces King Arthur white whole wheat flour, or 8 1/2 ounces King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1 3/4 ounces granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger

Directions:
Directions:
1) Grease and flour a 9" square pan. Preheat the oven to 350F.

2) In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.

3) Melt the butter in a heatproof measuring cup. Add the molasses to the cup, and pour into the dry ingredients in the bowl, mixing to moisten.

4) Add the water, stirring until everything is moistened. Whisk together the egg and buttermilk. Stir into the batter until it's evenly combined. Stir in the crystallized ginger.

5) Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the cake just begins to pull away from the edge of the pan.

6) Remove from the oven and cool on a rack for 15 minutes before slicing; gingerbread is best served warm with whipped cream or ice cream.

I got this recipe from www.kingarthurflour.com

Note:This recipe has a unique attribute: tasters can't tell the difference between the white flour and whole wheat flour versions. If you've been looking for a whole-grain recipe that's sure to please the whole family, this is it. It only takes a few minutes to put together, and bakes in about half an hour. For a quick and easy dessert that makes a great lunchbox snack (if you're lucky enough to have any left over), this gingerbread is the answer.

Our Guarantee: This moist cake is moderately spicy, and delicious made with whole grain or all-purpose flour.
