Gingerbread Cake With Brown Sugar Sauce

A delightful discovery I made in my Company's Coming 'Lunches' cookbook. The original recipe includes a lemon sauce, but we prefer brown sugar sauce with a generous dollop of whipped cream rather. Or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Mmm, and the smell... **Update Aug '09: Forget brown sugar sauce! Make a double recipe as a sheet cake (bake for only 20 minutes @ 325) with a double recipe of Caramel Cream Frosting! I don't know why I haven't updated this sooner -- I've been making it this way for at least the last 2 years already!!
