Forget the Fruitcake

The holiday clock is ticking, and you need some last minute gifts that are sure to arrive before Christmas. To whom do you turn? How about that old standby, Zingerman's?

Zingerman's has holiday treats aplenty, but I think nothing quite fits the bill like the Gingerbread Coffeecake. Forget Gingerbread Men. This is a dense, moist, slightly spicy cake, perfect for Christmas dessert or a brunch (even a midnight snack for Santa). Because it's so dark, spicy and luscious, it's ideally suited to the long nights around the fire that Yuletide offers. Also, frankly, it beats the hell out of fruitcake. Don't get me started on fruitcake. Fruitcake is what you send a giftee you can't stand; this Gingerbread is what you send a giftee with love and affection.

Prices range from $25-$50, all shipped for a flat rate. If you're not a fan of Gingerbread, any of Zingerman's coffeecakes would do. They're all simply scrumptious. Click on Zingerman's and start noshing.
