Gingerbread dates as far back as the tenth century, and it is no surprise that it has endured for the last millennia, because it is absolutely delicious. The word originated from the Old French word, gingerbras, which means 'preserved ginger'. This gingerbread recipe is very soft and very rich; it makes a big batch, so you may wish to halve the ingredients. Based on the brands I used, each slices is about 161 calories.
