LAURA’S FAMOUS GINGERBREAD RECIPE

4 Comments

The weather here in the Midwest has a hint of fall, which means it’s perfect for baking.  And what’s better on a cool autumn (well, almost autumn) day than the spicy aroma of gingerbread?

Laura was well-known for her gingerbread, famous you might say.  Laura mentioned that raisins can be added, which sounds yummy.  She also gave the option of frosting it with a chocolate frosting, but my favorite topping is a huge dollop of whipped cream.  (I always thought that gingerbread was a cookie, I didn’t know it could be a cake until I made this recipe!)
