Slowly whisk in the molasses mixture. Stir in flour mixture. Pour batter in prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until a skewer inserted near center comes out clean. Cool gingerbread in pan. Remove from pan. Tear two-thirds of the cake into pieces (about 7 cups). Set aside until ready to assemble trifle.

Made this for a pre-Christmas gathering. Delicious! I didn't bother with the cranberry compote and just used fresh raspberries on top instead, as it is summer here, but it was very, very good and I will be adding it to my dessert repertoire.
