Looks good! I've never cooked with coconut oil before, although that's on my to-try list :) anything I can substitute for it in the meantime?

You can substitute the coconut oil for your preferred cooking oil. Any oil should work, I believe the 'original' recipe called for vegetable oil.

Enjoy!!! :):)

We just returned from our Thanksgiving with family and friends. I am a bit late in coming to visit you after you linked up on 'EOA' Wednesday; but,I can almost smell the wonderful aromas coming from your kitchen :) Thank you for sharing your recipe...pumpkin is one of my all time favorites, and the ginger is a great addition since I think the more spices the better ;0 I hope you will continue to add your contribution on Wednesdays...these are the kinds of posts that people love!

We love pumpkin gingerbread. You can also sub homemade apple butter for the oil with good results. We double the spices and add a splash of molasses. Thanks for this-I think I will make some on this blustery day.
