    MissChif's Note:

    I've made this recipe a thousand times I got it out of "The Perfect Cake" by Susan Purdy and it's never failed me. (I do however add WAY more ginger than called for because I LOVE ginger). It tastes great when eaten warm with applesauce and generous dollop of slightly sweetened whipped cream.

      11/29 I couldn't give this a 5* because I did not get to taste it!! I baked it for a dessert to be served at a church luncheon. I can say, it was easy to prepare, smelled heavenly while baking and sure looks delicious!! I added 3 teaspoons of ginger, I too, love ginger!! Updated 11/30 DH requested I make this for dessert, and I am glad I did. I have never made a gingerbread cake using sour cream before, it makes a nice light, moist cake. This recipe was a success, thanks for posting MissChif.
