Gingerbread

Gingerbread, Chino House, Christmas desserts

I made a pan of gingerbread on our first snow day at home and we ate it so fast that I decided to make another one the next day.

It was gone even quicker than the first one.

It is crazy delicious.  Lots of ginger and super comforting molasses flavor.
