    Elle Woods Can Cook!'s Note:

    As a part of my annual Christmas celebration, I always make gingerbread. I've experimented with several versions, and I like this the best. It is a traditional gingerbread that is prepared in a loaf pan--not the dry cookie kind. The key to this recipe is the addition of ginger in both crystallized and ground form...the result is dark, moist, and has LOTS of ginger flavor. Perfect with a cup of coffee or hot cider! It also freezes well for later use.

      This is very good gingerbread! I like the addition of the crystallized ginger for that added zing. One problem though. The ingredient list has yogurt (which I used) but the instructions say buttermilk, which I will try next time. Made for Spring 2008 PAC.
