Lemon Glazed Gingerbread

Baby Kato


Another of grandmothers old fashioned recipes... sweet, moist and addictive, I love gingerbread and I hope you will enjoy this lovely treat.

Make sure that the gingerbread is completed cooled before cutting into squares and storing in an airtight container. The gingerbread matures as it ages and will become sticky.
