2 T. vegetable shortening

Pinch salt

2 large eggs

3 c. flour

To make the cake, cream the brown sugar, molasses, butter, shortening and salt until well blended and light.

Blend in the eggs. Sift and add the flour, baking soda, 1 1/2 t. ginger, cloves and 1/2 t. nutmeg. Add the water. Pour batter into a greased 11-inch-by-9-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the top comes out clean.
