This was great!! My grandmother used to make gingerbread and this was exactly the same. I did make two small loaves and shared with my neighbor. The smell was fantastic. My oven cooked much faster than the recipe. I cooked the loaves seperately and baked the first for about 40 minutes and when I checked the tester came out clean. I baked the second loaf for 35 minutes and the tester came out clean as well. I would definitely moniter the cooking time for your oven. Otherwise, this was perfect and exactly the gingerbread taste and texture I was looking for.

Very, very tasty and aromatic. The house smelled so good while this was cooking. This recipe makes a large loaf that completely fills the pan. The only change I made was to add a teaspoon of ground cloves (for two). I doubled the recipe and used about 1 1/2 of the loaves in a Paula Deen recipe called "Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle" (it called for two store-bought gingerbread box mixes)and it was absolutely delicious. We have been eating the remainder of the loaf with our breakfast... very flavorful!
