Ginger and Molasses Loaf

At my DIY Christmas Gift and Beauty Product Workshop one year, I wanted to create a recipe that would make a lovely home-made gift (obviously!) or a tasty treat to have after Christmas lunch.

Brenda Janschek - Ginger Loaf

The ginger and molasses in this recipe produce a taste reminiscent of gingerbread men and all things Christmas. Experiment with other ingredients like dates and walnuts, but this one is hard to go past on its own, judging by the ‘double thumbs up’ from the ladies at the workshop not to mention my family!
