Expert Tips

Gingerbread dates back to the Middle Ages when fair ladies gave a honey-spiced bread to dashing knights before they went off to battle. How romantic!

Want to give the gingerbread a strong, spicy flavor? Use dark (full-flavor) molasses. Or for a sweeter, more delicate-flavored cake, try the light (mild-flavor) variety.
