Sometimes I add raisins to gingerbread.
Cream butter and brown sugar. Beat until fluffy and add molasses. Beat in eggs. Add dry ingredients, then vanilla and buttermilk. Turn into a buttered cake pan and bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for between 20 and 30 minutes. (Check after 20.)
Cream Cheese Ginger Icing: Beat together the butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar and beat until smooth. Mix in the vanilla and candied ginger. Chill briefly before frosting the gingerbread.
