This is not your typical gingerbread. This is a very light gingerbread, more cakelike. Especially good in the wintertime when the aroma of ginger will really be appealing and appreciated, but really great anytime with a nice cup of coffee or tea. Heartwarmingly good. After it's cooled you can sprinkle with powdered sugar to make it look pretty or use a doily and sprinkle the powdered sugar over it for a pretty pattern.
If you want to frost it use a very light frosting, maybe seven minute icing. Doesn't really need it though. Double the recipe if you need a larger cake (9 X 13)
