The Classic Ginger Cake


This Ginger cake or we call also call it "Ginger Bread", is another hot favorite and a classic treat during Christmas time. Its origin dates back to 992 CE. Each continents have their own version of Gingerbread. But a typical Gingerbread will contain fresh ginger/powder, ground cloves, nutmeg or cinnamon and sweetened with honey, brown sugar and molasses. Gingerbread’s deep, rich color comes from molasses. The smell of it baking in the house bring the holiday mood instantly.
