    Delicious! I used Brer Rabbit syrup for the molasses. It was moist and spicy! Thanks for the recipe!

    It is delicious. I used very dark Jamaican molasses and so added a little extra sugar after tasting the batter. My house smells good now, also!

    This is a really moist gingerbread. Just the right amount of spice. I wish I had some whipped cream! Thanks for sharing I will definitely make this one again.

    I used butter and melted it with the molasses for quickness. I also added a few spoons of chopped glace ginger - as a ginger freak. It made a super moist but light cake. Thanks
