Gingerbread Cake

I've made this recipe a thousand times I got it out of "The Perfect Cake" by Susan Purdy and it's never failed me. (I do however add WAY more ginger than called for because I LOVE ginger). It tastes great when eaten warm with applesauce and generous dollop of slightly sweetened whipped cream.
