What is the difference between gingerbread and ginger cake? The main difference between gingerbread and ginger cake is the type of dough used. Gingerbread is made with a denser, spicier dough that often contains molasses or dark brown sugar. This type of dough results in a more dense, chewy texture and flavor. Ginger cakes are usually made with lighter, finer-textured cake dough that may include butter, eggs, and baking soda.


How to prevent dry bread? To prevent dry gingerbread, make sure your ingredients are measured accurately and that you bake the gingerbread for the right amount of time. Additionally, try not to open the oven door too often while baking as this can result in a loss of heat and cause the bread to dry out
