Directions

Return to a boil; remove from the heat. Serve with warm gingerbread. Top with pecan halves if desired. Yield: 9 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 6, 2013

I may be dense, but I do not see any crust on this cake. In the author's note she says "the gingerbread features a nutty crust" and in the picture I have in my files there is clearly a crust layer on the bottom of the gingerbread. So how does this miracle occur?
