Gingerbread

  • Christmas goodie #9 is gingerbread.  You guys this stuff is amazing!!  Although I am not sure why it is called gingerbread when to me it is more like cake.  This is a moist, spicy gingerbread that will fill your house with the smells of ginger, cinnamon, cloves and molasses.  It makes me think Christmas instantly.  I love serving this slightly warm drizzled with warm salted caramel sauce and a dollop of whipped cream.  MMMMM I must go get some now.

    Sorry for so many pictures in this post, but I really had fun with this one and it was hard to decide.  I think this would be a great dessert to serve to your Christmas guests.  My kids and husband gobble this up and soon an 8×8 pan just won’t be enough.  Darn I will have to double and have extra.  Good for my taste buds but not my hips, oh well can’t win them all!
