Serving Suggestions

Daddy Ray’s famous gingerbread is delicious on its own, but you can also serve it with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for an extra treat.


If you want to switch up the flavor of this recipe, you can try adding some chopped crystallized ginger, orange zest, or even cocoa powder for a chocolate twist.


If you don’t have molasses on hand, you can substitute it with dark corn syrup or honey. You can also use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar for a richer flavor.


You can store Daddy Ray’s famous gingerbread in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. If you want to keep it longer, you can freeze it for up to 3 months.


  • Make sure your butter is at room temperature before you start mixing it with the sugar. This will help it blend together more easily.
  • Don’t overmix the batter. Once everything is combined, stop mixing to avoid tough gingerbread.
  • Let the gingerbread cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack. This will help it hold its shape.
