Gingerbread with Hot Caramel Sauce

Recipe by MarieRynr

Delicious with coffee or served at brunch instead of sweet rolls. The caramel sauce is also good over pound cake or ice cream.

I made this for my husband and he was thrilled. I used treacle in place of the molasses and a bought ginger paste instead of the dry spice. Next time I'd increase the amount of ginger paste - 1 teaspoon wasn't enough. This is a delicious gingerbread. Well worth making.
