Crystallized-Ginger Gingerbread

Fresh ginger is valued as a traditional medicine for its stomach-settling properties. These effects make ginger a good counterbalance to a rich dinner, so it has long been a favorite ingredient in desserts. Here, the warm, spicy flavor of gingerbread is intensified by using two forms of ginger in one recipe: ground and crystallized.

Great flavor but ...
February 25, 2016
I wanted to make this for some time after making the WS Gingerbread quick bread mix which was delicious bty! Unfortunatley, the mix is only a seasonal item.
Glad that I did make it! Preparation was qick and easy, the most time consuming thing was mincing the ginger. Even freshly grating nutmeg was no big deal and well worth the effort! The flavor was fantastic!
I'd give it more than 5 stars if possible.
My only issue is that the center of the loaf collapsed either while baking or shortly thereafter both times that I've made it. Should baking powder be added? The recipe only calls for baking soda. I'll try adding a tsp of baking powder the next time that I make it. I might try to use a different pan. I've been using a glass loaf pan.
Comments or suggestions are welcomed!
Pros: Healthy, Easy, Quick, Will Make Again, Yield, taste

Very easy to do and great results
December 9, 2012
It literally took me like 15 minutes to just prepare everything, time enough to pre-heat the oven. I didn't run, just followed the recipe to the letter and the result was a great gingerbread, one of the best I've had. I replaced the covering for frosting (sugar + lemon juice instead of water) and it was even better.
Pros: Quick, Easy, Adaptable, Will Make Again
