Notes

When Aunt Lahoma was making Gingerbread, the wonderful aroma would bring us into the house. We couldn't wait to get a warm piece of gingerbread topped with either fresh whipping cream or warm applesauce. The kitchen always had this wonderful smell that had our mouths watering when she was baking gingerbread.

Aunt Lahoma served this with warm applesauce poured over the top. Others who have used her recipe have served with whipping cream.
