    1. Are you talking about the Gramercy Tavern gingerbread cake? If so, I agree with Candy...to us, it tasted even better the next day. Made it for Christmas dessert last year; delicious with freshly whipped cream. That's a really great cake!

        1. re: rubys

          can you post a recipe or a link to it?

      2. There are actually 2 Gramercy Tavern Gingerbread recipes at Epicurious...I use the "other" recipe but both have garnered rave reviews...the one I use does not have fresh ginger in it but I'll bet it's great.

        1. Do you think I could use a Porter instead of the Guinness?

          1. I've made this twice and both times it was great. It's spicy, tasty, and very moist. I used oatmeal stout and grapeseed oil and fresh ginger in the recipe.

            Great the next day. Took it to the annual Chowhound picnic a few months ago.
