This is a delicious, moist, dark, rich molasses- flavorful gingerbread cake that is not too sweet. I use butter instead of oil. On occasion applesauce is added instead of the juice due to what I have on hand. My family and friends have enjoyed this cake many times. My family doesn't care for crystallized ginger so don't use it. Great with Cool Whip.

So so so good! The candied ginger is what did it for me. If you can't find it, don't worry! It's very easy (and cheap) to make. Here's what I did: bring 1 1/3C sugar and 1C water to a boil. Add 1C chopped, peeled ginger and simmer for 20 minutes. Drain, dry and sprinkle with sugar. It's quite strong when eated alone but when baked into this bread, it just adds a super rich flavor and a fun chewy texture.

WATCH OUT!! This is Addictive!!! I baked it as muffins for the band members and they all LOVED it! I also did not include the crystalized ginger. I used 1 1/2 cup flour & 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and added 5 Tbsp. melted butter for more moisture. I am making more tomorrow because its all gone!
