Gingerbread Cake

I love the smell of gingerbread baking in the oven. A whiff of cinnamon and ginger gives a warm fuzzy festive feeling. I personally prefer baking gingerbread cake to biscuits as they are softer and richer due to a generous scoop of luscious golden syrup. The cake mixture is very wet indeed but what comes out of the process are trays of lofty high, golden, sweet smelling gingerbread. I do make it at other times of the year but there's never a better time than at Christmas :)
