"the Cake of Wisdom"

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Lalaloula

I found this on a recipe card at the local health-food store. It gets its name from the ginger it uses which is commonly regarded as a "clever" spice... :)

Definitely something different, & don't get me wrong ~ We thoroughly enjoyed this interesting dessert, even if it's not like most cake I've had (Well, it IS frosted, but still . . .)! Loved the flavor from the ginger & lemon AND the cinnamony icing! Well, worth making again, for sure! [Recipenapped & made in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 23]
