This is a great base recipe. I made quite a few alterations. I reduced the amount of ginger, reduced the temperature to 350 and cooked it longer. I also used an 8x8 pan as that was all I had on ...

Despite my mistakes, this recipe came out very well. only problem was the sauce was too watery. next time I will leave out the water when making the sauce
