  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix wet ingredients.

Serve with whipped cream as a dessert or in a bowl with milk for a sweet breakfast.

*Next time I make this soft gingerbread I might try adding a little applesauce to make it turn out more moist.

**This recipe came from my mom, and she said the original recipe came from a cookbook called “Wheat for Man” that my grandma and great-grandma both used.
