Notes about this recipe

  • anya_sf on January 01, 2022

    Easy to make, this lighter style gingerbread cake (sampled 2 days after baking) was preferred by some members of my household over a darker, spicier version I made for comparison. Everyone especially liked the flavor from the lemon butter syrup. Unfortunately, the cake had a sunken center - not sure why as I followed the relatively simple instructions precisely. Perhaps the cake strip worked too well.
