This Gooey Ginger Dessert is as sticky and sweet as it looks!  The ginger is not overpowering, just enough to my liking.

We always finish this dessert in no time at all.

The sauce forms at the bottom as well as on top of the pudding. And is wonderful if you serve this with ice-cream with a scoop (or three!) of the sauce over the ice-cream.

Do make sure to use your largest (I use a 3 liter capacity) baking dish with a lid.

Of all my Winter desserts, this one is the one which is always on request, and it is enough for a crowd.
