This is the best Gingerbread Loaf recipe you’ll ever make – Perfectly moist and a great treat for morning tea.
You can’t beat this delicious Gingerbread Loaf it is perfectly moist and I love it sliced with butter. Such an easy recipe you just melt together butter and golden syrup then mix it in with the dry ingredients, pour it into a lined loaf tin then bake.
It’s so easy and my son Archie loves making it with me, your friends and family will love it too. The recipe doubles easily so you can make one for you and one for a friend in the same batch. Or wrap it up in baking paper and freeze for later in an airtight container or large snap lock bag.
The trick to crumble over brown sugar before baking gives it a lovely crunchy topping. I tested this Gingerbread loaf recipe four times to make it a perfect balance of ginger and sweetness. I wanted a recipe that only took a few minutes to stir together, pour and then bake.
It is so good eating Gingerbread toasted the next day for breakfast with a slather of butter. Or you could heat up a thick slice and serve it as a dessert with a drizzle of caramel sauce and scoop of ice cream. Everyone who makes this loaf say it is their all time favourite.
The loaf tin I use is 23cm long 13cm wide and 6.5cm deep.
