Holiday Gingerbread Loaf

Pin It

Is it just me or do the holidays inspire you to do a lot of baking? I typically love to bake, however around this time I often find myself doing it more than usual. Cakes, pies, and loafs are some of my favorite things to make.

Since the holidays are here, I wanted to share a loaf recipe that would exemplify the season. What flavor would best represent this time of year than gingerbread? I particularly love making this gingerbread loaf not just around Christmas, but throughout the entire year. There is just something about a nice slice of delicious sweetness that seems to complement a cup of morning coffee (or tea, chai, milk, etc.) so well!
