According to the original recipe for Mary Washington's 1784 Gingerbread Cake, the mother of the United States' forefather served this cake at her home frequently. It has also been said that Martha Washington has served it as well! This old fashioned dessert recipe has a wonderfully warm flavor that you won't be able to get enough of, thanks to a handful of warm baking spices. It makes for the perfect Christmas cake recipe because it's easy to share and really captures the spirit of the holiday season. It was a Washington family-favorite and will soon be a family-favorite for you too.

I so loooove the smell of ginger in ginger cakes. I think that's what I love so much with carrot cakes. It's the unique smell of the ginger powder incroporated with the dough that makes it so mouth-watering.
