1824 English Gingerbread

Today’s episode features another recipe that ties into our Chemical Leaving Discussion. Although this is a newer recipe than most of our others, it is a great example of early Chemical Leavening.
RECIPE: Start with two cups of flour and stir in two teaspoons of powdered ginger. Mix in one cup of warmed “Light” or “Barbados” molasses. Divide a few tablespoons of milk evenly, and with half of it, dissolve 3/4 teaspoon of pearl ash. In the other half, dissolve one teaspoon of alum. Bake in a well buttered pan or tin for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.
