    Mary Leverington's Note:

    This was my favorite dessert when I was a little girl. I can remember clearly the smell of the gingerbread cooking in the oven--even now the smell bring goose bumps. Having two brothers I had to compete vigorously for my share of seconds. If I lost, my mother would always give me her piece when the the boys weren't looking. I don't have it any longer, but I remember finding this recipe many years later on a little scrap of paper in the pages of my mother's favorite cookbook.

      I served this for dessert tonight and it got rave reviews. A fabulous gingerbread, low in saturated fat, and the sauce elevates it to a new level! I wanted to be sure the sauce was very lemony and tart, so I used 1/4 cup lemon juice and 5 t cornstarch (like Lemon Dessert Sauce with extra cornstarch because I always seem to need more than recipes call for - maybe high altitude does that?). Thanks for posting - this is a keeper!
