"Gingerbread is an old favorite because it's simple to make. I learned that pioneers served gingerbread with meals, but now it's considered a dessert! Serve hot or cold, with a dollop of whipped or ice cream."

I was disappointed with this recipe. It was not sweet and tasted more like actual bread than a dessert. Good texture, consistency, and spicy flavor, but not nearly sweet enough.

My family turned up their noses at messing with their favorite Gingerbread recipe to a whole wheat one. I made this one and the 3 of us cleaned it up in one setting! (I halved the recipe)

I agree that this recipe could use a little more sweetness. I made it as stated, and it turned out quite yummy- nice texture and aroma. However, I think next time I'll add a bit more honey.

I was pleasantly surprised that such a simple, healthy list of ingredients could yield such a delicious bread! Great for dipping in eggnog. It's certainly a new holiday favorite.
