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!



There is way too much dry topping on this. Good flavor, but I'll probably not make it again.



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
