I just found a recipe for Ginger Cake. It calls for 1/4 C. of unsulfered mild molasses. I have unsulfered full flavored molasses. Is there any reason why I couldn't just substitute what I have? Would it just be more intense? Thanks!

It will work, but the molasses flavor will be stronger. If you are afraid the molasses flavor will be too strong you could use a mix of molasses and honey.

Substitute away! It should be fine. I make bran muffins that called for mild molasses. I just use whatever I can find, and I can't really tell a difference.
