This is almost like making a cake. There's a small exception so I'll give instructions. Beat the cup of sugar with eggs and shortening until creamy. Add milk and flour to which has been added the ginger, cinnamon and salt. (Never have I used 1 tsp of ginger or cinamon. Seems like 3/4 tsp is plenty) Now here's the difference: Measure the molasses into a large measuring cup. Stir in 1 tsp of soda. The mixture will foam up. That's why you need a large measuring cup. Now mix this into the batter. I always use a mixer. It makes a big ginger bread so grease a large pan. (9x13 or bigger) Bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes. Recipe was your grandmothers.
