For the Cake:
1 egg
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup sour cream
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
For the Frosting:
1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon heavy cream
6 tablespoons maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a bowl, combine the egg, maple syrup, sour cream, and melted butter; blend well.

In a second bowl, sift together the flour, ginger, baking soda, and salt and mix well. Combine the liquid and dry ingredients until they are well blended.

Pour the batter into a greased and lightly floured 8-by-8-inch baking pan and bake for 35 minutes or until the cake pulls away from the sides of the pan.

Transfer to a serving dish and let cool before frosting.

In a bowl, combine all of the frosting ingredients. Mix until smooth. Spread over the cooled gingerbread.

I wouldn't bother to make this again. The maple flavor is weak. It's been ages since I've had gingerbread from a box mix, but I think I would prefer that over this recipe for flavor. This cake is very moist.
