Starbucks Gingerbread

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Please note I have not tried this as yet and I really prefer posting recipes that I try firstly but this was submitted for a request on the boards. I am not claiming it to be the *real* Starbuck's gingerbread, but it may be very close. There was no mention as to what size pan to bake it in so use your own judgment. I assume by the amount of ingredients an 8x8, 9x9 or an 11x7-inch pan would work fine.

Starbuck's or not this gingerbread is amazing. Other than making a reduced recipe, the only change I made was to use Recipe #145505 for the spices. Something that I am sure to repeat. Made for the Photo Forums *Moan and Groan Over Best Comfort Food*
