Ginger ale has long been used as a remedy for an upset stomach. But a generous slice of home-baked gingerbread could be just as effective. Research shows that compounds in ginger can sometimes suppress an upset stomach and nausea.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Beat granulated sugar and margarine at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended (about 5 minutes). Add molasses and egg; beat well.

Step 3

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (flour through cloves). Add flour mixture to sugar mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture.

Step 4

Pour batter into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Sift powdered sugar over top of cake, and serve warm.

For me it's a perfect, classic gingerbread. Easy to throw together with pantry items, moist and light when warm with a pleasant aroma and taste.
