    puppitypup's Note:

    Topped with whipped cream, this simple dessert is one of my favorite comfort foods. It's quick enough for a weeknight treat, and tastes even better for left-overs! Originally from Esther Shank's Mennonite cookbook and tweaked a bit by me.

      This is one of the "softest" gingerbreads I've ever made. Not to mention, the smell while it is cooking is out of this world! Thanks for sharing!

      This recipe far exceeds any gingerbread i've made, and that's saying alot.. Texture is cotton soft, bakes up beautifully and so easy to remove from pan, no sticking at all. There's no need to alter this recipe... It definately deserves more than five stars........ Thanks a million for sharing it.

      I enjoy the smell of baking, but one of the things I REALLY ENJOY is the smell of gingerbread baking! Followed your recipe right on through, & the resulting gingerbread was OUTSTANDING! Cinnamon, ginger, molasses = Wonderful! Certainly want to keep this recipe around! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Potluck Tag cooking game]
