Grandma Brown's Gingerbread
30 mins (prep 5, cooking 25)
10 ingredients
18 servings
Grandma Brown was my great-grandmother on my father's side. I never got to meet her, but I remember my grandma making her gingerbread. Last Christmas, I made a bunch of it up and gave it to my family. Now, I give it to you. Enjoy! Due to feedback, I am adding another comment here...old-fashioned gingerbread is a dense cake. If that is not what you expect from gingerbread, then this recipe is probably not for you.
