Thing Two wanted to cook something with me today, which is a pretty typical Sunday afternoon request. After going through some of the cookbooks in the house, we ended up making a half recipe of these gingerbread baby cakes from Baking with Julia (and which Serious Eats has online here.) I had a few cups of cinnamon syrup left over from poaching some pears last weekend, so I cooked that down a bit and added some butter and cream to make a caramel sauce, and we had dessert to follow up dinner.
