Very good flavor. The gingerbread is great and the citrus sauce, while very sweet (my husband loved it for that reason) a drizzle over a slice of the bread is divine. Will definitely make again.

This recipe has become a family tradition- I made it for my parents a couple of years ago, and now am "required" to make it for all holiday get togethers. I've even made a low sugar version that went over well, replacing the sugar and molasses with agave syrup. The gingerbread itself is wonderful, and the citrus sauce adds the perfect complement.

This recipe was wonderful! I made it for my family for Christmas this year, and everyone raved. The gingerbread and lemon flavor combination was excellent. The cake itself was very easy to make; the only things I altered were adding more ground ginger (I omitted the fresh ginger because I didn't have any) and I used a scotch ale instead of a stout because again, I didn't happen to have a stout on hand. I think that any dark, malty beer that is not hoppy or bitter will do just fine. I baked the cake in my Wilton cast mini snowflake pan and sprinkled powdered sugar on the cakes for the look of "snow." All in all, this is a great, flavorful recipe that I'd highly recommend!
