People always hesitate to try a cake that hasn't been reviewed and sometimes they don't know what they are missing!!! We really like this pound type cake (heavier than most gingerbreads) and for us the plus being that it isn't loaded with baking soda. Did have to cut back on sugar by 1/4 cup because it was too sweet for us. Should mention that you have to be a molasses fan I like it warm and buttered!!!!! Thanks for a good cake.P.S. I forgot to add that because we like ginger I added 1 tsp. of powdered ginger - more if you like and then it is a gingerbread pound cake.P.S. just realized that my rating did not show up on recipe - sorry ......good cake
