Buttermilk Gingerbread

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by swirlycinnacakes

It's gingerbread with a twist :P You can substitute water for the buttermilk, or sour cream if you want a richer bread. If using water, reduce baking soda by 1/2 teaspoon. Don't worry if the top of the bread gets a bit dark - that's the molasses caramelising.
