Old Fashioned Gingerbread

With the holidays coming up I thought I'd share my late momma-in-law's gingerbread recipe.

Old Fashioned Gingerbread

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup molasses
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp soda
1 1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup buttermilk
Nuts and raisins (to taste)

Mix first 3 ingredients until creamy.
Mix in dry ingredients; then the milk.
Stir in nuts and raisins.
Bake in large, greased and floured loaf pan for about 1 hour at 350 degrees.
