  • 3  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  ground ginger
  • 1  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1  cup  shortening
  • 1/2  cup  packed brown sugar

  • 1  cup  sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/4  teaspoon  vanilla

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Grease a 10-inch fluted tube pan; set aside.

2. Stir together flour, cinnamon, ground ginger, baking powder, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl; set aside.

3. Place shortening in another large mixing bowl; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add eggs and molasses; beat for 1 minute. Add flour mixture and water alternately to egg mixture, beating on low speed after each addition until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
