YES a five star! Both wonderful and has that old fashioned taste that makes for childhood memories - how well I remember the awesome gingerbread my mom would make for dessert on a cold winters night. I am betting Anna got that recipe from her mom! Thank you for sharing. Made in memory of Elly's DH.

This is a wonderful, old fashioned kind of gingerbread, reminds me of the gingerbread my mother used to make. My kitchen smelled fabulous while this was baking, we couldn't wait for it to cool to have some! Yummy. Thanks for posting!
