    Sue Lau's Note:

    Nice and spicy. The flavor always brings a feeling of warmth and cheer to me. The aroma is positively divine. Makes 2 loaves, one for now, and one you can wrap and freeze for later, or to give as a gift!

      I made this gingerbread this morning, and I and my family were extremely pleased with the result. I took several slices warm to Barbershop practice today, and they all loved it (my sister, admittedly, taking most of it). I live in New Zealand, and for some reason every other quickbread recipe I've used has had the bread sit very low in the pan - maybe NZ bread pans are just really big, or something - but in any case I decided to make this into one loaf instead. (Good move - except that I forgot about the temperature, so had to bake it for longer at a very low temperature after the hour had gone!) It worked beautifully in the end though. I used golden syrup instead of molasses and also adlibbed the spices with abandon (my sister adores ginger, I love cinnamon), and in fact marbled some (along with brown sugar) through the middle - all turned out fine. Thanks for this recipe, I'll definitely keep this one on hand from now on whenever I feel the urge to bake!

      Too dry. Based on other comments, I reduced the bake time to 35 minutes at 350. Still didn't turn out. Had an okay flavor.
