Old Fashioned Gingerbread

When I was a little girl I can remember my grandmother making gingerbread often. She would top it with mounds of wonderful sweetened whipped cream. We are going to skip that part and use a couple tablespoons of Sugar Free Cool Whip instead and not miss a thing.

This cake is full of flavor and is wonderful texture and an added bonus is your house will smell wonderful while it bakes! I learned some of my best cooking lessons in my grandmothers kitchen. All of my aunts, uncles and my mom would get in there and cook up a storm. I am sure that this gingerbread would pass their scrutiny.
