A type of sweet bread flavored with molasses, honey, and ginger. It is often made into cookies with a dense, chewy texture and cut into various shapes such as the ginger bread man. It can also be made into a dark, moist cake, which is often topped with a lemon sauce or whipped cream.
The Creamy Gingerbread Frosting makes this gingerbread extra festive for holiday celebrations. If you prefer a simpler presentation, omit the frosting and dust the gingerbread with confectioners' sugar.
