This is better than any gingerbread cake than I've ever eaten - gluten free or not !

I made the recipe exactly as called for. I'm not a fan of super-sweet desserts, but this just tasted a little "off" to me, a bit too savory. I was a little alarmed at the inclusion of mayonnaise as part of the recipe. I may try it next time by replacing the mayo with ricotta cheese, but I definitely wouldn't make it again as is.

I loved this recipe! It tasted wonderful. I have to admit I like spicier so I added a little more here and there in the spices. However, it was the fluffiest cake I have made yet of a gluten free recipe. Thank you. It will be one of the key ingredents in my pumpkin trifle this week.
