Soft Gingerbread Cake. Pehme plaadipiparkook

pehmepiparkook (11)Have I said that I just love gingerbread.

The real and my favourite gingerbread is very thin and crispy. Look at for recipe here.

But sometimes you want some change and something different.

Soft gingerbread cake has all best features of gingerbread: flavour, smell, aroma, seasons… but soft.
Juicy and fruity cowberry- apple sauce complements very well gingerbread flavour and reduce sweetness ( and makes it healthier dessert :))20171201_091452
