What is lovelier than hot gingerbread with whipped cream on the side. This one which features a spiced sauce that accompanies it to the table.

Completely delicious and it’s perfection itself when you serve it warm from the oven on a cold winter evening after a pot of thick rich soup.

I serve it warm, with its accompanying sauce, warm lemon pudding and big dollops of whipped topping to make a perfect cold weather dessert.
