Magical Orange Gingerbread with Cream Cheese Frosting!

If you love gingerbread, one bite of this cake and you’ll be convinced a fairy godmother must have waved her magic wand to create such perfection!

Magic Gingerbread

So, aside from the Fairy Godmother, why am I calling this “magical” gingerbread? Two reasons:

One, it tastes like Christmas! Imagine sitting in front of a roaring fireplace with a cup of hot tea and a platter of THIS delicious gingerbread to share with your family? Magical memories are sure to ensue!

Two, our Sundays with Joy group had some interesting experiences with the amount of batter fitting (or not) into an 8×8 pan. Obviously from the picture below, mine fit into TWO pans.


It was a very curious conundrum!

Magical Gingerbread has quickly become a favorite around here! I especially love the unexpected pop of the pomegranate arils on the frosting. It makes a fabulous cake even more… well…. magical!
Joy the Baker wrote about it in her cookbook, but then she posted it again on her blog. Yes, it’s just that good! Here is the link to the recipe:

I think I may have had another magical moment… I used both “ensue” and “conundrum” in a post. Wow! 😉

Try the gingerbread! You won’t be sorry!

Till next time, foodie friends! XOXO
