Favorite Gingerbread Loaf & Gingerbread Topping

Cassie *


This is my all time favorite Gingerbread, and my Grams recipe. So moist and flavorful, it's hard not to keep picking at it. The topping I serve on the side is delicious as well...

Recipe can be halved as well.

How to Make Favorite Gingerbread Loaf & Gingerbread Topping


  • 1Preheat oven to 325 degree F. Spray 2 - 9 inch glass loaf pans with Bakers Joy or grease and flour. I never used anything but glass with this particular cake, my Gram never said why not to use metal.

    In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and spices. Set aside.
  • 2In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, oil and molasses until smooth.
  • 3Alternating flour with buttermilk, combine the flour mixture into the molasses mixture.
  • 4Blend well and pour into prepared dishes.

    Bake for 55 minutes, not opening door as they bake, can make them fall.

    Test with a pick in center of cake to see if done.
  • 5I make a gingerbread topping to serve along side of this yummy cake. Can just sprinkle with powdered sugar or glaze if you prefer.
  • 6Here is the topping:

    In a bowl, whisk milk, pudding mix and spices for 2 minutes or until thickened. Fold in whipped topping. Keep refrigerated between uses.
