READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Stacey Sweet

This is a lighter version of a gingerbread cake. Instead of 1 1/2- 2 Cups flour, this recipe only requires 1/2 Cup.

Made for Zaar Cookbooks Tag. This did not turn out for me at all. There is way too much liquid for the amount of flour in this recipe. I ended up with a gooey mess.
