For baking this 19th century receipt (recipe), Thick Gingerbread, I chose a GraniteWare pan. GraniteWare was first manufactured in the United States by two German immigrants, William and Fredrick Niedringhaus. They were the founders of the St. Louis Stamping Co. for the mass production of stamped kitchen ware and brought the process of enameled kitchen ware from Germany to the United States. The US Patent for the process is titled “Improvement in Manufacture of Iron-Ware” number 177,953.
