    Use butter instead of shortening, and fresh ginger in place of dried.

    This receipe was great. Was nice and moist. Better the next day.I make some homemade applesauce to serve with it and was perfect.

    I made this gingerbread with the lemon sauce for a group of 12 women and they all were very complimentary. The lemon sauce tends to gel if made the night before, but is still good. Also, I had no cloves and left it out with no noticeable results.
