The taste was great. It was just thing i was looking for the holiday season. I was disappointed that it sunk in the center (used a bunt pan), so when I plated it, the visible part looked great, but when you cut it, the piece looked a little funny. The lemon sauce was a nice addition. I even made some candied lemon peels and scattered over the cake.

I found this recipe when searching for something gingery to bake in a gingerbread cottage-shaped cake pan. It is perfect! My only change was substituting 1/2 cup honey for 1/2 cup of the molasses. The batter is just the right volume for my pan, and the cake is wonderful. The whole house smells like the holidays when it is baking. I have made two already and have more planned for gifts.

The cake had a delicious flavor, but mine sunk in the middle like it was not completely done when it was, so when plated it looked a bit odd. I made my own lemon sauce to go over it. It was enjoyed, but still more gingerbread than pound cake to us.
