I'm so pleased to find an egg-free cake recipe for my 2yo daughter that she likes! She's also wheat and milk free, so I used spelt flour and soured soy milk. I put the ingredients and bowl on the kitchen floor and let her mix it! A big mess, but she loved it. The gingerbread had a great rich flavour, and is very moist. Thanks for a keeper!
The best gingerbread!! Great spice combination. Awesome texture. I followed the direction but used expired half and half in place of buttermilk. SOOO TASTY!! Thanks for sharing.
The bread is soft, substantial (weighty), flavorful and slightly sweet. It makes both a great snack and a dessert. In fact, it was tempting to make it a part of every meal of the day (as I did).
