Welcome everyone, I just wanted to let you know that I entered the Your Best Recipe
contest. If you are interested in signing up go on over to Spicie Foodie
where Nancy can give you all the information you need.
Now that we got that out of the way, on to my post.
This is one of those surprise recipes that you were not expecting. I got the recipe and modified it from a book called The Bread Machine Bible. It was one of those recipes where you have all the ingredients in your pantry. I modified this so that you can bake it in a regular oven instead of your bread machine. The directions were referring to a bake only option which I don’t have on my machine.
This is not your typical gingerbread in the sense that it doesn’t have the heavy cinnamon taste that we associate most gingerbread’s with. It is a bit lighter because baking powder is used for the leavening agent.
Oh by the way, it does have ground ginger in it.
Please give this recipe a try, I think you will be glad you did.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2/3 cup milk
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Grease or spray a loaf pan.
In a medium saucepan, heat the brown sugar, butter and syrup until blended. Set aside and allow to cool.
In a medium bowl combine the flour, salt, baking power and ginger. Add the eggs and milk and beat until blended with a wooden spoon or mixer. Add the cooled melted mixture and blend everything together. Pour the mixture in a loaf pan and place in the middle of the oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Remove the bread from the pan and allow to cool on a wire rack
Serve warm or cold.
Peace be with you,
