This is one of my favorite desserts, and one of the oldest I know—I’ve seen recipes dating back to the early fifteenth century. I love molasses and am especially happy to eat a calcium-rich treat with the added benefit of tofu. I prefer my gingerbread plain, but when I was growing up, my neighbor Millie Ricitelli used to serve her gingerbread with a lemon topping, and the combination is quite popular. Try it with my Lemon Glaze.
