This should've been a poll.

Is this a parody thread?

I'd rather have toothpaste with an orange juice back

No its not. I need to know so that I will be prepared. When I invite you over for tea.

I prefer to sauce around the cake down on the plate—the diner can wipe it up with gingerbread.

I love lemon, & it pairs well with ginger..but I don't want it in this case. And I've never understood blueberries (which I love) in gingerbread cake, either

Cake without frosting is like sex without cum. Literally.

On the side.

No lemon anything! It’s a vile, acidic fruit, that monopolizes/ dominates/ ruins, every food it touches.

****** The only way I find lemon palatable, is when it’s mixed in a recipe with a fuck-ton of sugar; i.e. lemon meringue or lemonade.

It certainly lacks eye appeal, based on the photo, which I find off-putting.

The sauce is really all sugar. Certainly more palatable than the very tart lemon meringue.

I would happily eat lemon sauce with my gingerbread. My favorite gingerbread cake is Laurie Colwin’s Damp Gingerbread.

A lemon cake with ginger frosting might do it, though.

R13 - “ The sauce is really all sugar. Certainly more palatable than the very tart lemon meringue”

Uh, no, R13. If you read the thread title, it’s not “really all sugar”. There’s lemon in it …. Mostly sugar? yes, likely.

And, you can decrease the tartness of lemon meringue, by increasing the amount of sugar.

I've never had this combination.

Every cake is better with sauce.

Okay, then. I'm going to say with lemon sauce because maybe that will disguise the awful taste of gingerbread.

I like hard sauce and whipped cream for gingerbread.

There, fixed that for ya. 😀

That looks like cotton balls and piss colored cum on that chocolate cake.

Hard pass!

Gingerbread is nasty.

Can I have the lemon sauce on a poundcake instead? Thanks.

With lemon. The lemon should not be too sweet. My mom made a dynamite Gingerbread cake w/ lemon.

Gingerbread doesn't need sauce.

I made this tonight -- never heard of this particular combination. Husband and I really enjoyed it, and he's not a fan of gingerbread

WITH lemon sauce, which must be warm.

As a young teenager I worked in the kitchen of a Girl Scout camp up in the Adirondacks one Summer. The cook was retired Navy(it was the first time the kitchen staff was all male) and he was very good at his job, the girls loved everything he made. Gingerbread with lemon sauce was on the menu about once a week. The cake was a bit on the mild side for my taste, but the combo of the the sauce and cake was very good.

What the girls REALLY enjoyed though was the same cake spread with a highly-spiced applesauce(I remember it being particularly clove-y) tinted a pale pink. The moisture from the applesauce eventually seeped into the cake and made it even more luscious. When the head of the Girl Scouts organization came for an inspection/visit, she liked it so much she asked for a few pieces to take home with her.

The photo looks like a piece of gingerbread topped with marshmallow creme and a raw egg yolk.
