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.

Thank you so much Petdrwife for sharing your lovely gingerbread recipe. My mother and I enjoyed this easy to make dish very much. So much that we ate the whole cake by ourselves for breakfast and lunch today...totally awesome.
