I made this cake as the recipe states, with one exception. I only had dark molasses, so I replaced about 1/3 of the amount with clear Karo corn syrup. I thought this cake tasted good, but did not have the pronounced ginger flavor I wanted and I thought that it was just a little on the dry side. I served it with a vanilla custard sauce (I just used 1/2 my homemade vanilla pudding recipe and added more milk)which made up for the dryness. I think that more powdered ginger (or a little fresh) and maybe the addition of a little bit of yogurt or sour cream (1/4 C.?) would bring this up to 5 stars.
