  2. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside.
  3. In another bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Mix in the sour cream, lemon juice, vanilla, ginger, and lemon zest.
  5. Mix half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Then add in the remaining flour mixture.
