This is a great holiday recipe...makes the house smell great, and is very easy.

1.5 cups flour (I used whole wheat, but that makes it denser)
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/3 cup natural cane sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup molasses
1 egg
2/3 cup milk

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, beat the sugar and butter together until well blended, and then add the egg and molasses. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients and stir with a fork. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the sugar and butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Grease or spray an 8x8 inch baking pan and pour the batter in. Bake for about 30 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
