    I have never left a negative recipe review before but this was not good. I cook a lot but this hard a really strange taste.

    This was simple to make and took exactly 45 minutes in a glass baking dish. I substituted 1/4 cup of apple sauce for half of the butter in this recipe to save some fat, and it's deliciously moist. I didn't make any whipped cream or frosting for it, though next time for a little extra sweetness I will finely chop up some crystallized ginger and mix it in. Would go wonderfully with vanilla ice cream!
