Here’s a classic ginger loaf with a twist on the frosting – simply add cinnamon to the frosting mixture for a delicious cinnamon frosting that complements the loaf – definitely one to add to your baking collection!
Sift the icing sugar and Gregg’s Ground Cinnamon into a bowl. Add enough of the juice from the orange to make a spreadable consistency but runny enough to pour onto the cake. The frosting should be able to run down the sides. The frosting will be enough to cover both loaves or one large loaf.
*There are a number of different types and sizes of loaf tins on the market – we find it easier to give a capacity measure to help guide you into using the correct size of tin.
*For the cinnamon frosting the orange juice can be replaced with milk or water. However the orange juice does give a lovely flavour to the frosting
*The ginger loaf is also delicious without the frosting served sliced with a little butter if wished.
*This recipe can be frozen - allow the loaves or loaf to cool completely. Do not spread with frosting. Wrap tightly in clingfilm. Place in an airtight container or sealable plastic bag. Can be frozen for up to 1 month. Thaw at room temperature. Prepare the frosting and spread over the thawed loaf.
