This is a cakey gingerbread that you can cut slices of like a loaf. It is a family favourite, and lots of my friends have asked for the recipe. Yum!

This is a good recipe and I can definitely see it being made again. In fact I've put in on my next fortnight's menu plan already. And you get two loaves from 2 eggs! Can't complain about that!
