    A delicious, and for me, nostalgic dessert that couldn't be easier to make. It was so good topped with a generous amount of whipped cream. Mine was ready after 30 minutes of baking.

    It was amazing! Just don’t use too big of a pan like I did because then it becomes thin gingerbread

    So good! 35 minutes was a bit longer than mine needed. Will probably start watching it at around 25 minutes next time.

    looks very much like my recipe. I also add a small handful of mini chocolate chips, and expresso powder to the boiling water. Additionally if I have an apple, I grate and add 1/2 apple

    Cooked this gingerbread as a memory food for my wife and she loved it. I used another orange glaze icing recipe found on Yummly for a topping. The gingerbread is great eaten by itself or with the icing. My oven cooks fast so I browned the top a little too much. It was difficult to tell when it was browning since the gingerbread is dark brown already but it turned out ok. I plan on cooking this recipe again.
