Warm Ginger Loaf


In winter evenings when the sweet cravings kick in, all I want is something warm, sweet with a hint of spice. Ginger loafs are one of my favourites, I've made it before a few years ago and wanted to try and bake it again and improve the recipe. If you're like me and not really a chocolate lover and want something sweet, give this a try. This is great to eat just on it's own or with a cup of tea. I personally love to heat up the ginger loaf and custard, to me it is a quintessential winter pudding.

2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 teaspoons of ground ginger
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1/2 a teaspoon of salt
1/4 cup of caster sugar
1/2 cup of agave nectar
1/2 cup of softened butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup of buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celsius, grease and line a loaf (9x5 inch) tin. In a mixing bowl, stir the flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt thoroughly. Then in a larger mixing bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, agave nectar, butter and vanilla extract well together. Add the dry flour mixture and buttermilk alternately, mixing together well with each addition until smooth. After, pour the mixture into the tin and bake for around 50 minutes and then leave to cool. And enjoy.
