A Family favorite since 2009! For an added Scandinavian kick, we double all the spices ( per my Swedish grandmother's suggestion ) and serve it w/ unsweetened whipped cream. We make it in a pie pan - pretty at parties!
This is SO delicious, gingery and moist, and the maple syrup whipped cream is perfect for it. Ideal sized cake for a small family gathering.
I love gingerbread, but I usually make it with cooking oil because I refuse to use shortening which many recipes call for. I decided to give this recipe a try, but ran out of molasses at about a 1/2 cup, so I added dark agave nectar for the remaining 1/4 cup. I also reduced the cloves because a little goes a long way. Results were very good. I've added this to my regular recipes. Yum!
This is in my favorites file. It's even better and more moist on day two. I've made it more times now than I can even remember!
This is a nice gingerbread cake- light and just moist enough. I substituted allspice and nutmeg (1/4 tsp each) for the cloves with nice results. Great with morning coffee!
I've never been fond of gingerbread, but I'm a convert now. Delicious and easy to make.
My husband and I agree that this is the best gingerbread we have ever had.
I adapted this recipe to be gluten free, and it was wonderful! In place of the wheat flour I used 1 1/2 cups of brown rice flour, 1/4 cup of tapioca flour, 1/2 teaspoon Xanthan gum and 1/2 teaspoon guar gum. I increased the butter to 6 tablespoons and the egg from 1 to 2, the soda to 2 teaspoons, and the sugar to 1/2 cup. All the rest I left the same. I usually have to try 2 or 3 times to get a recipe converted where it will turn out as close as possible to the original recipe, but this one worked the first time!
This worked beautifully - my husband didn't even wait for the whipped cream - don't understand the problem with the pan size, I have an old aluminum pan 8x8 and it worked perfectly. Tks FC & Ms Pugliese - it's delicious & will make again.
Delicious. I had no problems fitting this in an 8"x8" pan. No overflow. My pan was 2" high. I would make this again, it's very moist. The flavour was lovely, especially with the whipped cream.
This is a perfect recipe. Moist and spicy with a light texture.
Smells and tastes good, but the 8" cake pan is too small, and the cake overflows. Grrr. Next time I'll use 2 pans.
