1850s gingerbread spice cake is the taste of Christmas nostalgia

“Of all the recipes found hidden in my great-grandmother’s cookbook, this one is the oldest, dating back more than 170 years. It was the first of her recipes that made it into my oven, and when the door opened, Christmas morning danced out in a cloud of nostalgia,” writes Sarah Gonzalez, author of “Baking with the Bread Lady” in her recently released cookbook of 100 recipes. “It was a molasses cookie in cake form. I created a mascarpone buttercream to add a bit of tart sweetness.”
