How to make gingerbread loaf

  • Start by combining flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves and salt, set aside.
  • In a stand with the paddle attachment cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add in molasses and vanilla.
  • One at a time add the eggs and scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Add in the dry ingredients to the stand mixer alternately with the buttermilk, stirring just until blended after each addition. It’s very important not to over mix this bread. The more it’s mixed the tougher it gets.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45-50 minutes.
  • Cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing from the loaf pan to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Can you freeze gingerbread loaf

Yes! You can freeze gingerbread loaf in an airtight container for up to 3 months in the freezer. I like to wrap the bread in aluminum foil then store it in a large freezer bag!
