I made this and LOVED IT!!!! (My opinion: if u like the taste of ginger, i would increase the ginger by 1/4 tsp more…. BUT that’s just me, especially after tasting the original recipe.)

As much as I love gingerbread, I’m skipping this one. It’s TOO hot here to think about it.
Once winter hits, I’ll do a rewind!

I have a completely unrelated question for Lorelei. I noticed that someone got taken off the blogroll. Are we going to have a break on June 14th, or is a newbie getting plugged in for that day?

haha, I didn’t even think about the weather when I chose this recipe. I’m just a sucker for ginger!
But, here in England it’s never REALLY Summer anyway, rather a perpetual autumn so I guess this is perfect 😉

I’m excited to give this one a try, I have a pan I’ve been wanting to make gingerbread in — the fairytale cottage bundt — which is 10 cup capacity, and the 9 by 9 by 2 pan (called for) also has a 10 cup capacity according to an online pan chart — so this should work out perfectly!
I’d love to find that ‘perfect’ gingerbread recipe, and be all ready for the holidays 🙂

I love my usual ‘perfect’ gingerbread recipe, but I’m excited to try this one also. Gingerbread knows no season in my book — love the stuff. That being said, I will leave off the cocoa b/c I’ve tried choc gingerbread and it’s a disappointment for me. Trying to decide if I’m going to add anything to replace the cocoa, but thinking “no.”

I just tried to purchase a single bottle of Guinness at the grocery store and they said it had to be sold by the six-pack. I think I’m just going to sub in whatever kind of beer we have in our refrigerator, since I know there’s some that’s been sitting around since the Super Bowl. I love gingerbread, so I’m happy to have an excuse to make it!

I found with guinness based recipes any stout or ale will do, I often sub it for locally produced ale from a near by monk community.

I’m thinking of adding some candied ginger to the recipe, I really like the taste. We have Guinness at home and I know who will finish the bottle, ME!!!

Well, I couldn’t find a tall boy of Guiness like I was hoping, but I did get my hands on a bottle of Double Chocolate Stout. Pretty excited to see how it works in this recipe. I have high hopes!

[off topic] Does anyone know of any must-visit bakeries or eateries in Boston? We’re heading over there in a couple of weeks. Thanks!!

At Trader Joe’s you can mix and match beers if you don’t want a six-pack of Guiness.

I made mine last night. I really like ginger, so I added some fresh ginger to the batter, and I’m glad I did since I don’t think it would have been strong enough for me without it. And I didn’t use cocoa.

I made mine last night too. I liked it more than I expected to. I’m not a huge fan of molasses but thought the molasses flavor was pretty mellow.

I made these early – OMG, a baking group first for me. I made them into cupcakes with ganache filling and bailey’s buttercream frosting and people at work went nuts. I didn’t have all the molases called for, so I subbed in some maple syrup, worked great.
So, for the missing week I am trying to set something up with THE Melissa Murphy, so stay tuned.

Oh wow, that sounds so exciting Lorelei!
My gingerbread is in the oven right now, it smells amazing 🙂

Im gonna make mine today, I was thinking about cupcakes too. Baileys butter cream sounds awesome, I was thinking a maple version for mine. Hmmmm.

I think I’d love the cupcake version! Bailey’s = yum! I’ve not taken a proper taste yet, but the spice might be a tad mild for my preferences.

My gingerbread just came out of the oven and it smells so good. I put some crystalized ginger in mine and used heaping teaspoons of the powdered ginger.

OK, needs MORE ginger if you really like a spicy gingerbread. Not disappointing, just not enough flavor.

Eeek! Sorry I missed this one guys. I’ll be back in the swing of things for next week’s cherry pie. In the meantime, I can’t wait to see all of this gingerbread goodness.

We loved the flavor of this but it didn’t come out that great with the shaped pan. I will have to post a couple photos of my gingerbread with the cherry pie next Sunday!

I tried to buy a single bottle too and wound up with a case of it… Luckily, my dad drinks it!

I have wanted to go to this bakery for a long, long time now. Everything I hear about it says it is fantastic! Bobby Flay’s sticky bun throwdown (which I think he lost) was against the gal who owns Flour.

I too will try to rewind this one when we have some cold weather (92 degrees here yesterday). I just didn’t have all the ingredients to try to make it this time either.
