Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Great Gingerbread, all around. The aroma, while it was in the oven, was incredible. I wish I could have captured it into a candle. Loved the texture, as it was tender with a slight chewiness, almost reminiscent of the perfect textured brownie. Tasty and comforting as can be, like getting a hug from Mrs. Clause. Thanks so much, Marra, for sharing this with us. Made it for FYC.

Excellent Gingerbread! I've never made it in a pan like this, usually in a tube pan.. but this was perfect for us as we do not need that much. Great taste and so moist. Thanks for sharing!

This was a wonderful gingerbread cake. It's easy to make, too (that's always such a "plus" for me). I served it for a mid-day snack with a fresh pot of coffee, and my kids and husband insisted on topping their slices with chilled whipped cream, but I had mine without cream and it was plenty sweet, with every bite full of all those warm spices. I'll definitely make this again and won't change a thing because the flavor is perfect. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Marramamba.

We love gingerbread and this recipe was great. Just the right amount of spice. I didn't hear the timer go off so mine got left in the oven about 5 minutes too long, but the flavor and texture were still quite good.

What a great recipe Marra. We loved this thick, rich, flavorful and spicy cake. It was awesome, beautiful flavor and texture. Crispy, crunchy yet soft and tender also. So good. Thanks for sharing a new family favourite. Shared with my sil, they loved it also. Made FYC tag game.

Daily Inspiration

I absolutely love gingerbread and this recipe was really yummy. It was easy to make and results were great -- I only baked it for about 25 minutes as my oven cooks hot. This will go great with a cup of coffee.
