Last weekend I had the pleasure of sharing a delicious meal with some new and old friends. I was warned ahead of time that the gracious host, Sarah, is quite talented in the kitchen. Of course as the curious foodie that I am, I had to see/taste this for myself… After filling my belly with Sarah’s magnificent arugula salad with a pear-infused vinaigrette followed by a classic spaghetti and meat sauce, which is better than what I’ve tried in most restaurants, I can honestly say I’ll be back!
But my favorite part of the evening was when she pulled out this decadent sticky gingerbread topped with a lemon glaze, or maybe the correct term would be icing, but you could call it “goop” for all I care and it wouldn’t matter because it was delicious! The bread was moist, slightly sticky, and had just the right amount of ginger without being overwhelming. Plus it went perfectly with the sweet and tangy lemon icing… It was deeelish! So I decided to make it and share with my toughest critics (ahem), we’ll leave their names out of this.
