No, this isn't authentic gingerbread. But it's still delicious, with a few alterations. First, the sugar. I used 1 cup of white and 1/5 cups of light brown - helps with the overwhelming sweetness everyone kept referring to. Second, I doubled ALL the spice amounts. Finally, I baked it as directed at 350 for 1 hour... after which I turned the oven down to 125 and baked it for another 15 minutes. Perfect texture. A nice crispy crust with a delicious, perfectly cooked center. I rated this four stars instead of five, because the actual recipe listed just didn't work. However, with my alterations, it was amazingly delicious and I would eat it everyday.
