Grandmother's Gingerbread

This recipe was handed down from my husband's Great-Great-Grandmother - his Grana has it written out in her grandmother's own handwriting! In this family, it's made & served like a piece of cake. I made it 24 small pieces because the flavor is pretty strong. I can only have a small piece at a time. Of course, my husband can eat more than that!
