Streusel Topped Gingerbread With Butter Sauce

Streusel Topped Gingerbread With Butter Sauce created by Wildflour

This great recipe came from my local paper ages ago. I love making this at the holidays. It's easy to whip up and the kids adore it! I often make it without the butter sauce, but the sauce makes it decadent! This is easy to make ahead of time, just gently reheat the butter sauce when time to serve. Also doubles easily to make in a 13x9 pan.

    Oh my goodness, this was absolutely delicious! I love gingerbread, and the butter sauce was a lovely addition to a moist and flavorful dessert!I made this for Best of 2010 Tag, thanks for a new favorite!

    So simple and so good. I will definitely be making this again. It was devoured! A great way to use up that leftover buttermilk that I always seem to have for some reason. And I highly recommend the sauce.

    This is fantastic, and very tasty with the streusel topping. I didn't make the butter sauce for our first tasting but may make some tonight because I doubled the cake, which is definitely the way to go! I made this for ZWT #6 and I'm a Quisine Queen!!
