I managed to make a nice version of gingerbread from this recipe but I did that by deviating from the original recipe a lot. I only used one egg and added 150 water, used 2tsp ginger, doubled the baking soda and used only 400ml instead of 500ml of flour. With that many alterations, plus the fact that this was a dense gingerbread and not chewy at all, I only gave the recipe 3 stars.

I didn't think these were chewy at all, but very cakey. They were not like had expected. They have good flavor, just simply not a fan of the texture. I think they would be way better baked in a smaller pan. I might try again. Oh, they baked very quickly at 350, so keep an eye on them!!
