This Gingerbread is one of the best that I have ever had before. It is light and moist, spiced just right and so easy to pull together quickly. I love that it stays moist for several days after baking, not that it will stick around that long. Serve this to your guest with a mug of hot cider and lots of holiday cheer ! The recipe is courtesy of the big red/orange Betty Crocker cookbook.
