    Bev's Note:

    I adapted this recipe come from Nigella Lawson's Cookbook, How To Be A Domestic Godess. It is rich, moist and quite delicious! I have made a few changes to suit my personal preferences.

    For the gingerbread

    For the icing

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 325°F.
    2. 2
      In a saucepan, melt the butter along with the sugar, syrup, molasses, ginger, and cinnamon. Off the heat, add the milk, eggs, and baking soda in its water.
    3. 3
      Measure the flour out into a bowl and pour in the liquid ingredients, beating until very well mixed (it will be a very liquid batter). Pour it into the pan and bake for 3/4 - 1 hour until risen and firm.
    4. 4
      Be careful not to overcook it, as it is nicer a little stickier, and anyway it will carry on cooking as it cools.
    5. 5
      And when it is cool, begin the frosting. Whisk the lemon juice into the confectioners' sugar first, then gradually add extract and milk, as needed to make desired consistency.
    6. 6
      Spread over the cooled gingerbread with a palette knife, and leave to set before cutting.

      Absolutely Fantastic! Fits the description - rich, moist and VERY delicious! And I have to say, these go deliciously well with vanilla ice cream!! I am not a big fan of icing but I quite liked this one - it wasn't overly sweet - it was subdued by the tanginess of the lemon.. Thank you, Bev, for sharing this wonderful recipe. Next day update: Had to make Bev's Creme Anglaise ( Vanilla Custard Sauce) since DH insists nothing beats fresh gingerbread served with English custard. But I still think it's vanilla ice cream...
