Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
This is a good basic recipe but seems to need a lot of revisions. I took the advice of the reviewers and doubled the spices, and used 1 3/4 water. I also used unsulphured molasses as another reviewer recommended. The gingerbread was very moist and had a nice dark color, but was on the bitter side, although my six year old did still like it. Next time we'll reduce the molasses to try and reduce the bitterness (we used the full 1 cup), and will probably try and add a sweet lemon glaze, or cream cheese as others recommended to balance out the taste or something else to balance out (this is not a sweet gingerbread recipe so good if you're looking for something less sweet but some sweetness will be complimentary). Might also consider tripling the cinnamon as one of the reviewers recommended. We did not try the applesauce. We found it was ready in slightly less than 1 hr.
