1 tsp Baking Powder

½ tsp Salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease and flour a 8” x 8” pan.


Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt, set aside.


Melt butter and let cool (slightly, do not let harden)

Combine butter, sugar, and molasses. Mix well.

Beat eggs slightly, add to butter mixture. Add vanilla. Mix well.

Stir flour mixture into butter mixture.
