Gingerbread is a sweet food that is flavored with ginger and typically using molasses rather than just sugar.Addition of cinnamon,cloves,ginger gives a very good spice flavour to the cake.It comes out very soft and spicy.One of the traditional Christmas cake recipe I adapated from,only a change I substitute Molasses with maple syrup.When I first saw the ingredients,really felt how was the taste will be but,absolutely delicious with nice spice flavors which suits in this cold winter,I can say a perfect Christmas treat for whole family.I'm posting this recipe in BM#47 under the theme kids delight (holiday special recipes) here goes my recipe.
