This gingerbread spiced cake recipe is from the Betty Crocker cookbook. This cake can be served on its own or with sweetened whipped cream.

2 1/3 cups flour

1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Prepare a 9" square pan with butter and flour it lightly, pour the batter into the pan. Bake in a preheated 325F oven for about 50 to 55 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm on its own or with sweetened whipped cream.
