Sourdough gingerbread

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Active Sourdough Starter
½ cup Hot Water
½ cup Molasses
½ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
½ cup Firmly Packed Brown Sugar
1 large Egg
1½ cup Unbleached Flour
1 teaspoon Ginger
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
½ cup Shortening

Cream brown sugar and shortening and beat. Then add molasses and egg, beating continuously. Sift dry ingredients together and blend into hot water. Then beat this mixture into creamed mixture. As the last step, add the sourdough starter slowly, mixing carefully to maintain a bubbly batter. Bake in pan at 375F for about 30 minutes or until done.
