The computer and and I barely tolerate each other. I have checked out all recipes and commented. Other than that, I haven’t a clue what I did. Ha Ha. The important thing is I want you to know how much fun I have had throughout this challenge. Thank you so much for putting the time and effort into this project. I hope and yours have a wonderful holiday season.

I love Gingerbread!
Julie A. Peterson says
I am reading some Christmas fiction by Debbie Macomber. Enjoy the holidays with family and friends. thanks for the great recipes too.
I did leave a comment on the post, but I looked through all the comments and couldn’t find mine after posting. Not sure if there’s a waiting period for it to pop up. Never really used the site before. I don’t know if this one will post, either, but I hope so!
Never mind on this. I can now see both my posts, but only on my computer, not on my phone, which is what I posted on. Weird! An early Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone! Happy baking! 🙂

Valerie Krahe says
Hi! Love the gingerbread recipe. I have three questions about the starter:
1. What temp should the water be?
2. What temp should the milk be?
3. Do I have to separate the starter into 1 cup containers or can I keep all the starter on my counter and use 1cup as needed?
I made the starter and fed it at day 6 and 10. I have not decreased the amount if starter except for taking out a cup for sourdough bread one day and then pizza dough another day. My starter looks great but my bread did not rise nir did my pizza dough. I tried the water in the oven for the bread and the proof feature on my iven for the pizza dough. Help?

Big fan of gingerbread?
I will try this recipe. I have to make the friendship bread starter mix. I just found your blog.
I’ll make this for my sister. We love a little something with our cup of tea. This is perfect.
I’ve made gingerbread before but I used to use the box mix. But always homemade whipped cream.
I left a comment! I plan on trying this recipe for my daughter, who is a big gingerbread fan!
Veronica G. says
I left a comment! As I mentioned there, I will definitely bake some gingerbread.
Diane R. says
Left a comment about the gingerbread recipe. My husband loves the cookies so I think he’ll like the bread too. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Definitely going to make this! I used to make gingerbread all the time. It seemed so exotic with a doll up of home made whipped cream and a pinch of dark brown sugar on the cream. I also used to add a turbana do sugar on top for a little bling.
Debi Baker says

I am leaving a comment for you.
I love gingerbread. I have made it several times in the past. it has been a long time and had almost forgotten about making it. You respired my interest. I am on fixed income so, I am thinking about making this for my friends as a gift and some of my special senior ladies that I do their hair..
thank you for the reminder and GREAT GIFT IDEA.
already printed off recipe..ready to start making this recipe.
thank you .. now my gift list can be completed.
all excited about making ginger bread recipes.. my husband will be so excited when he smells this cooking.
I left a comment about the gingerbread recipe. I can’t wait to bake some.
I love gingerbread everything, so I know I’ll love this. Just finished basic friendship bread to take to my neighbor today. Let’s see, is there a gingerbread biscotti recipe?
