This is one of my favorite recipes for the seasons. Mama’s gingerbread is actually my mother in law mom’s recipe. I have been married for 11 wonderful years and I don’t know how but just last year I put a piece of this gingerbread in my mouth! I was so hooked that I didn’t ask for the recipe I just snapped a picture of it to make sure I didn’t lose it. I have made it three times in the last week. Is that good!
I think the flavor of this gingerbread reminds of the marranitos (pan dulce little pigs) they used to make at the bakery by my mom’s house in Monterrey. There’s just something about this gingerbread that makes me feel so cozy inside.
