Ginger Bread (old recipe)

My Mom loved recipes. She read them in magazines, exchanged them with friends, clipped, saved, and used them -- but she had so many that she might make something once or twice and then she would move on to other things. She had her regular staple dishes (as every one does) but every once in while she would make something fantastic.

I remember her making this recipe only once or twice but I fell in love with it. I knew I loved ginger bread because of this recipe.

It was soft, warm, spiced just right, and tasted good with a little butter spread on it, like bread.

My mouth is watering!
