    Petdrwife's Note:

    I got this recipe from a friend who aquired it from a friend in Ireland. Very moist with a great gingerbread taste. Great with a dollop of real whip cream.

      I made a lot of modifications to this and it was the best gingerbread I have ever had or made! My changes: all whole wheat pastry flour, 1/4 cup more water, only used 1 teaspoon baking powder, used 1/2 cup sugar, tripled the amount of powdered ginger, added another egg, used 2 tablespoons fresh ginger root, and added cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, black pepper, and 1 1/2 cups grated carrots. A lot of adjustments, but it made it absolutely perfect.

      Thank you for such a wonderful gingerbread recipe. As it is written it certainly deserves 5 stars. Of course, we love spicy cakes and this is perfect for us. Great with lemon sauce or whipped cream. This is one of the few recipes that does not require changing.
