Old Fashioned Gingerbread Loaf

An old fashioned gingerbread loaf is a perfect dessert to have on hand when friends and family come to visit.


– All purpose flour – Baking soda – Cloves – Salt – Cinnamon – Ginger – Allspice – Sea salt – Brown sugar - Butter - Eggs - Molasses - Boiling water


– Powdered/     confectioners sugar – Maple syrup – Bourbon (sub milk for     non-alcoholic glaze) – Vanilla –  Pinch sea salt

Homemade gifts are wonderful, and easy homemade gifts are even better.  This is the best of both worlds.

The maple bourbon glaze is whisked together in a small bowl, then pour it right over the bread to coat it.  Let the gingerbread cool completely before glazing.

I like a strong gingerbread with a lot of spice. This is not at all overpowering, but it is an old fashioned gingerbread loaf that is full of flavor.
