Gingerbread with Vanilla SauceDawn Mikesell
“Gingerbread refers to a broad category of baked goods, typically flavored with ginger, cloves, nutmeg or cinnamon and sweetened with honey, sugar or molasses. Gingerbread foods vary, ranging from a soft, moist loaf cake to something close to a ginger biscuit.” This is cited from Wikipedia. Depending on where you’re from gingerbread could mean different things. In England gingerbread may be a cake or it may be a cookie. In the United States, gingerbread is sometimes called ginger cake to distinguish it from gingerbread cookies. And other countries have their variations.
That being said, today I have for you what I consider to be a classic gingerbread. The cake form. And it’s delicious. Especially when it’s served warm with a vanilla sauce. It’s just what the holidays ordered.
