Gingerbread

As you might have noticed from our previous recipe, we love ginger almost as much as we love pumpkin spice. This bread, in particular, has become a festive favorite of ours—both during the holidays and throughout the rest of the year.

STEP ONE – Preparations

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Lightly spray a 9×5 inch metal bread pan with canola spray.
  3. Get out a small glass measuring cup and a large glass measuring cup.
  4. Get out a large mixing bowl.
  5. Set up a cooling rack.

STEP TWO – Make the Batter

Ingredients:

1 cup milk
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 stick unsalted butter
½ cup molasses
1 egg plus 1 egg white
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Instructions:

  1. In the small glass measuring cup, combine the milk and vinegar and leave for 5 minutes to sour.
  2. In the large glass measuring cup, microwave the butter for 45 seconds.
  3. Add the molasses to the melted butter and stir to combine.
  4. Add the eggs and buttermilk and whisk well.
  5. In the large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
  6. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and incorporate without overmixing.

STEP THREE – Bake the Bread

  1. Spoon the batter into the bread pan and top with a sprinkle of raw sugar.
  2. Bake for 50 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  3. Cool the bread on the cooling rack for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the bread from the pan and cool for another 5-10 minutes
  5. Cut the bread into 1-inch-thick slices and enjoy warm or at room temperature.
