This is gingerbread how gingerbread should be. You don’t have to rifle through your cabinet for a million spices and you don’t have to run to the store to buy Guinness or stout. The incredible richness and complexity is thanks to blackstrap molasses, which is powerful enough to mellow out the shrillness of ginger and to impart an earthy, caramelly flavor to the cake.
