Breakfast Gingerbread (Smörgaskaka)

This recipe is also from the Great Scandinavian Cookbook.

4 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

7 tablespoons brown sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon ginger

2 teaspoons crushed cardamon

3/4 pint sour cream

1 cup molasses

3 1/2 tablespoons melted butter


Preheat the Oven to 345 degrees Farenheit

Mix the four, baking soda, brown sugar and spices.

Beat the sour cream, molasses and butter together and fold them into the flour mixture. Pour the batter into a wll-greased bread pan.

Bake for a long time. This recipe says about one hour. I say more like 90 minutes. But that probably depends on your oven.

Serve with butter and marmalade.
