As a part of my annual Christmas celebration, I always make gingerbread. I've experimented with several versions, and I like this the best. It is a traditional gingerbread that is prepared in a loaf pan--not the dry cookie kind. The key to this recipe is the addition of ginger in both crystallized and ground form...the result is dark, moist, and has LOTS of ginger flavor. Perfect with a cup of coffee or hot cider! It also freezes well for later use.
