Gingerbread Loaf


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.

Gingerbread Loaf

Cream together:

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar

Then add:

  • 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:

Cream together:

  • 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.
