This cake has a wonderful combination of flavours and textures. There are two layers, a dense bottom layer and a crumbly top layer. It's deliciously moreish. Perfect with a cup of tea or coffee.
I've just searched over an hour to refind this terrific recipe. It's livened up a lot of coffee hours, and is VERY easy to put together at the last minute. My daughter loves helping stir and crumble the top. An excellent, delicious cake-bar! - 05 Jul 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a nice, moist cake bar. Only change I made: used butter instead of shortening. Next time I make this I would add a 1/2 tsp more ginger and a bit more cinnamon--I like my gingerbread with a very pronounced flavor. I did not find the topping too dry - 14 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
There is way too much dry topping on this. Good flavor, but I'll probably not make it again. - 01 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
