    Satisfied Kris's Note:

    This is my grandmother's recipe from the 1930's. It's my favorite spicy gingerbread/cake recipe that's wonderful served warm with whipped cream or butter. Prep time is estimated.

      Oh, this was so wonderful. I am not much of a sweet eater but good homemade gingerbread is something that I really like. Your recipe instructions were very easy to follow. Had a delicious flavor and soft, tender texture. I ate mine plain but the rest of my family wanted whipped cream on top. A wonderful wintertime dessert. Thanks.

      I loved this recipe too; because my Mom's diabetic, and loves ginger, and so I substituted Sugar Twin for the sugar, and used Corn syrup, as I didn't have Molasses on hand. This recipe in my opinion was on the best I've found; because although it still calls for two kinds of sweeteners, it was less sweet than others I had looked at. As previously stated by the other two who reviewed it, I agree it was easy to make; and I added to My Cookbook, as I would definitely make it again. Thank you for sharing your Grandma's recipe, she must have been a wonderful lady, these kind of memeories are priceless.

      This is one heck of a good gingerbread recipe. Love how easy it is to mix together and bake. We blobbed whip cream on top, and WOW, it really hit the spot! Thanks so much for sharing, SK. You've got a winner here! Your Gram must've been a dandy cook! Laudee
