Recipe by Satisfied Kris

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.
