Anyone who likes gingerbread cookies will like this cake. It is one of my Godson's favourite cakes and it is often a race to see who gets the last piece!

We really enjoyed this gingerbread! It was easy to make and I had everything on hand. It was very moist & flavorful. I served it with my grandmother's lemon sauce. I will definately make it again. I think that next time I might add chopped apples for a different taste, but it will definately be used in it original form many times over.
