This is a little different from standard gingerbread in that it incorporates candied orange peel and almonds.
A really good recipe! I did make it without the orange peel, however. The beer gives it a nice lift & airy texture. Even the 3 -yr old liked it! - 29 Mar 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is a really great recipe. It's a great contrast to all of the overly sweet desserts that pop up around the holidays. It's still sweet, of course, but in a much more hearty way. One change I made was to cook it in a bundt pan, which made it much more aesthetically pleasing and fun. It does take slightly longer to cook this way, however, so trust the toothpick! - 23 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I had high hopes for this, and the house DID smell wonderful as it baked.... I was skeptical about the whole wheat flour, but followed the recipe, it has a great taste, but I don't like the grainy texture from the wheat flour, I may use all white flour and try it again. I don't rate recipes I have rewritten and changed, and folks who like wheat flour better than I may like this better than I, but it kind of ruined it for me. - 11 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
