Description

A delicious gingerbread loaf with a light spice and delectable cinnamon and ginger glaze.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE BREAD:
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter, At Room Temperature
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, melted
  • ½ cups Confectioners Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Ginger

Preparation

For the bread:
Preheat oven to 350ºF.

In a large bowl, combine the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat with a hand mixer until completely smooth and the butter is fully incorporated. Beat in the buttermilk.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Slowly stir the dry ingredients into the wet until all the flour is incorporated.

Butter and flour a loaf pan (approximately 8″ x 4″) and pour in the batter. Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 20 to 30 minutes before flipping over onto a rack.

For the glaze:
While the bread is cooling, make the glaze by adding the milk to the melted butter. Whisk in the confectioners sugar, cinnamon, and ground ginger until fully incorporated. When the bread has been removed from the loaf pan, drizzle on the glaze.
