Yum! The tastes of fall are spicy, citrus-y and sweet! This will become one of your favorite fall treats! I went a little mild on the spice, however you can bump it up if your family’s taste buds crave more spice. If so, I would suggest doubling the cinnamon, ginger and allspice.
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup molasses
- zest of 1 orange
Mix well and then add:
- 1/2 cup plain unsweetened yogurt (equivalent to 2 eggs)
Once the yogurt is mixed in, sift the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl:
- 2 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp allspice
Alternate the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients, adding the hot water last.
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup hot water
Mix well. Spread into a parchment lined or greased and floured loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 45-50 minutes.
Cool. Top with your favorite cream cheese icing, I used a brown sugar one:
Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Icing:
- 1/4 cup softened butter
- 1/2 pkg softened cream cheese
Then beat in:
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- pinch salt
Whip until brown sugar is dissolved.
