It doesn't get much easier than this! Mix it all together and stick it in the oven. And, oh, what a wonderful smell you'll have coming from your kitchen! I do recommend really greasing and flouring the pan well and maybe cooling it on a rack for 10 minutes before unmolding. My bottom stuck a bit. I also used an 8x8 pan and made 12 gem-sized muffins (bake 10 minutes). Talk about instant gratification! All I was missing was the whipped cream. :) Thanks!

Absolutely delicious, and couldn't be easier! I made no alterations for high altitude, and my gingerbread turned out perfectly. Thanks for sharing this one!

Fantastic. I had this recipe years ago and lost it. A box mix does not even compare to this. Most wonderful aroma!
