This recipe makes a lovely, moist and sticky Gingerbread cake. I came across it in a very old cookbook dated 1963 and I'm sure that if you decide to bake it, you will not be disappointed. It can be served as a tasty dessert, with a lovely vanilla custard poured over it, or enjoy it as it is, with a nice cup of tea or coffee.
