gingerbread made with sour cream.

Gingerbread Made With Sour Cream from Jenn:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup molasses
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
2 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp fine salt
1/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup boiling water

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9-inch square pan. Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in molasses, lemon zest, then beat in eggs 1 at a time. Sift in flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt, stirring until blended. Stir in sour cream, then boiling water. Scrape batter into prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool cake for 20 minutes, before turning out on a cooling rack to cool completely. Then enjoy some sweetened cream, a lemon or vanilla glaze.
