Gingerbread with Chantilly Cream Recipe

Publisher Photo
An old-fashioned family favorite, this treat has never lost its popularity during the holidays. A blend of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg make the bread extra flavorful…and my guests always comment on the “cute” dollop of whipped cream on top! —Pam Holloway, Marion, Louisiana

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 7, 2012

"Maybe it's just because I have a sweet tooth, but to me this gingerbread was just not sweet enough with only 3 tablespoons total of sugar. Plus the molasses flavor was very overpowering to where you can barely taste the spices. I didn't make the cream with it so I don't know if it helps any, but i used Redi Whip instead since I had it on hand."
