    Default Ginger dessert

    Oh wow! I forgot about this board for almost forever!!

    I am hoping someone here can help me. I've been looking for a ginger dessert recipe my late grandmother made for us every Christmas. She mixed a ginger batter which she then poured into a dish that had hot water, sugar ?, ginger ? and then baked it. The batter rose over the hot water mixture which formed a ginger sauce at the bottom. Please someone out there help!! I've been looking for this recipe for more than 8 years.

    That sounds interesting.... Your grandmother made it? I have one VERY old cookbook (published during WWI) that might have a recipe for that in it. I'll try to remember to look there tonight, but don't have time right now as I'm *supposed* to get getting ready for work right now....

    Cazz, this sounds right....have you made it? If you have, does the hot water mixture sink to the bottom of the dish? I remember my grandmother making the sauce in the dish she baked it in then simply pouring the batter into the hot water without mixing the two.

    yes the sauce forms at the bottom.

    you place the batter in the dish and then pour the sugar mixture over the batter. You dont mix it
    but the sauce forms at the bottom

    its yummy

    I know! Thanks, she'd make it every Christmas without fail, in the middle of the heat, with ice cream! YUMMY!!! I'll give this one a try.
