    Swan Valley Tammi's Note:

    A delightful discovery I made in my Company's Coming 'Lunches' cookbook. The original recipe includes a lemon sauce, but we prefer brown sugar sauce with a generous dollop of whipped cream rather. Or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Mmm, and the smell... **Update Aug '09: Forget brown sugar sauce! Make a double recipe as a sheet cake (bake for only 20 minutes @ 325) with a double recipe of Caramel Cream Frosting! I don't know why I haven't updated this sooner -- I've been making it this way for at least the last 2 years already!!

      Loved the cake! <br/> Hated the sauce, even after adding butter to help with the taste! <br/>The cake can stand on its own without the additive of the sauce!<br/> If you really want to have it warmed up with a bit of vanilla ice cream! Delicious!!!!

      This was my first time baking a gingerbread cake. I doubled the all ingredients with the exception of the cinnamon that I increased to 1 1/2 teaspoon because I do love cinnamon. Baked in a 9x13 pan for about 37 minutes at the temperature stated. The cake is wonderful, so moist and a perfect balance of spices. Not too over powering in my opinion. Also made the Caramel Cream frosting! A perfect pairing! Thank you for sharing your recipe!
