After sampling gingerbread at William Sonoma I decided I could make it at home so the search began for a recipe.....Some say to top with a cream cheese frosting....Will have to decide if I want to add that to the top.

1 1/2 cups sugar, plus more for sprinkling on top
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 Tablespoons molasses
6 Tablespoons butter, melted
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups sour milk or cream
3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

Serves / Yields
one 9x9 or 9x13 pan

Preparation Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Stir together the dry ingredients. Add the molasses and melted butter. Add the eggs and milk or cream (if using cream, omit the butter). Sift together the flour and baking soda, and add to the mixture. Beat for 2 minutes. Turn mixture into a 9x9 (9x13) pan. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake 40 minutes.
