This doesn’t have a lot of ginger taste, but a hint of the classic gingerbread which was what I wanted.   (Use 2 teaspoons for more ginger flavor.)  Oh my it was good!   My middle son, the oldest twin, decided to help himself the best way he could.   I couldn’t get angry with him…no matter how the bread looked when I got back to it.
