  1. Love anything to do with ginger, especially in a cake that looks moist. Doubt if I can find molasses here. Although, I’ve just bought in treacle. Haven’t had that in years. No idea if it’s anything similar. Will Google to find out 🙂

  2. I like that you warmed up the color temperature to go with the tones of the gingerbread (especially in third photo).The second photo is nice!  The bottom half could almost pass for a landscape.X                   Xiomáro | Art Studio | New York             http://www.xiomaro.com | Facebook | Twitter2012-14 Visiting Artist at Weir Farm National Historic Site Get the Print of the Month and help fund my next exhibit

  3. So I guess I am the third person writing “you had me at Chekov”, but the rest of your post is great too. I also just love the cake, the molasses, the flavors, I can imagine the smell… this is all perfect for the season! Happy holidays, dear Amanda, I am really looking forward to reading more of your posts in 2014!

    • Thank you, Darya. I feel the same way about your blog. I feel like I’ve come to know you over the past year and it’s part of what I love most about doing this! Happy Holidays, friend. And Happy baking!

  4. A Chekov introduction to gingerbread cake, I like it! This is my first visit to your blog Amanda but I love what I’ve seen so far! I adore anything gingerbready, spiced and delicious. Love the look of this cake. Hope that you had a beautiful Christmas, all the best for a blessed start to 2014! xx

  5. Gingerbread cake – nothing better in winter and the dusting of icing sugar makes for a very Christmassy treat. So much food so few meals!!! This is another recipe I would love to try.

  6. I don’t know which I like best…the writing or the recipe. Actually, it is nice that I don’t have to make that choice. Love that your recipe calls for freshly grated ginger for great flavor. Gingerbread is such a welcome dessert in winter. Happy New Year.

  7. Clearly I’m trolling back through posts I haven’t had time to read. I LOVE gingerbread, but I only get it once a year, from a coffee shop in Providence, right before the post-Christmas drive back to Boston. This is great. I’ll use it as a reward sometime in the middle of February. Happy New Year. As usual, fun photos. Ken

    • Thanks, Ken. It’s a good time to catch up. I have so much photo editing to do that I’m behind. The gingerbread was a perfect winter treat. Full of good spices.
