Being that Laura Ingalls Wilder has been a lifelong hero of mine, and I have always been obsessed with anything victorian/historical like that...
I have an entire cookbook of Laura Ingalls Wilder recipes [http://www.amazon.com/Little-House-Cookbook-Frontier-Ingalls/dp/0064460908]
I can't copy them here, but I do have something you should love just as muchhttp://www.recipezaar.com/190527
It is Laura's actual gingerbread recipe- and it is sooo good! I highly recommend using this chocolate frosting on top:
CREAMY BROWNIE FROSTING
6 tablespoons butter -- softened
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp Hershey's Cocoa
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar
2 to 3 Tbsp milk
In medium bowl, beat butter, cocoa, corn syrup and vanilla until blended.
Gradually add powdered sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistency.
Makes about 1 3/4 cup frosting
