Guess What This Type of House Is Called?

This house is an example of a type of Colonial architecture that can be traced to New England. Typically, these frame houses have two stories in front and one in back, a pitched roof with unequal sides, and are short and high in front and long and low in back. The front of the house is flat and the rear roof line is steeply sloped. This type of house has been popular since the mid-1600s! Can you tell me its name? (Hint: a common baking and seasoning ingredient is part of its name.)
