Welsh Gingerbread is an exceptional cake and the kind you’ll eat with a fork. Not for making houses, but great with a cup of cream tea or glass of milk. Gingerbread is a delight throughout the Winter season and not limited to the holidays. It’s wonderful when served with apple sauce or sauteed apples or ice cream.
