No special items needed.


We love gingerbread and this recipe was great. Just the right amount of spice. I didn't hear the timer go off so mine got left in the oven about 5 minutes too long, but the flavor and texture were still quite good.

What a great recipe Marra. We loved this thick, rich, flavorful and spicy cake. It was awesome, beautiful flavor and texture. Crispy, crunchy yet soft and tender also. So good. Thanks for sharing a new family favourite. Shared with my sil, they loved it also. Made FYC tag game.

Daily Inspiration

I absolutely love gingerbread and this recipe was really yummy. It was easy to make and results were great -- I only baked it for about 25 minutes as my oven cooks hot. This will go great with a cup of coffee.
