Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, thoroughly stir together the flour, baking soda, ginger, nutmeg and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the sugar and butter until well combined. Add the molasses and vanilla. Mix well. Add the eggs, one at a time, until well mixed.
Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture alternately with the buttermilk, stirring just until blended after each addition.
Spoon the batter into a greased 9x5 inch loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
Cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
Remove from the pan and cool.
*In place of buttermilk, you place one tablespoon of vinegar in the bottom of a 1 cup measuring cup. Fill the rest of the cup with milk. Allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes before using.
