      This cake had great flavor and superior texture! Sooo good! I did not have any orange zest, so I substituted lemon zest. I also reduced the amount of fresh grated ginger to 2 T. My grated-ginger-in-a-jar was kind of coarse, so I pureed it with a little bit of applesauce before adding to the batter. The fresh ginger in this cake gives it a unique, full-bodied taste that isn't like regular old gingerbread made with powdered ginger. We really enjoyed this! Thanks.
