MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 31, 2012

This was my first time having anything gingery and it was spectacular! I made it around christmas time and it filled the house with a holiday scent. My family couldnt wait to have a piece. I served it with whipped cream on the side. Be careful with the cinnamon sugar topping.. if you dont watch it it will burn around the sides of your cake. will for sure make over again.

This was a moist dense gingerbread that needed no alteration, however I used minced fresh ginger and served it with lemon sauce. The entire family requested that it be added to the family favorites recipe. Will make it again and again.
