Moist Ginger Bread

Moist Ginger Bread – Mix-n-Bake recipe for 2 Ginger Bread loaves as 1 is simply not enough ! Moist, soft and divine !

Moist Ginger Bread

This moist Ginger Bread is so soft, it is almost like a melt-in-the-mouth pudding ! Butter is not really needed, but I do like that tiny bit of buttery taste with the bread.

My son used to ask me every single day to bake a batch, and I did, most of the time as everyone loves it.

But, after a while, I gave him the recipe (he was about 14 years old then) and since his very first baked loaves, it was a success. It is easy as that !

I think we had this like every second day, when he made it, and keep in mind this recipe makes two medium sized loaves.

Once it is out of the oven, the first bread is finished within 10 minutes – I promise! The second loaf disappears shortly after dinner.

It is best when served warm with butter but because the bread is so moist it is just as good cold, and the bread keeps extremely well in a sealed container.

We had it with whipped cream and once with ice-cream, but butter only, is still definitely our first choice.

This is a mix and bake – no nonsense – recipe and it has never ever failed us.

As I mentioned above, no need to wait, just give it a few minutes to “settle” and dig in. (that sounds bad .. dig in .. but once you get the smell from the oven, you’ll check the time every minute!)

What's the spice mixture?

Mixed Spice is found with the other spices. I checked the label and it is mainly a mixture of ground cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg with cinnamon being the strongest flavor. I would use 1 t Cinnamon, 1/2 t Cloves and 1/2 t Nutmeg if making the spice myself for this recipe

I’m in the UK and wanted to check which type of flour (self raising?) and Ugarit (soft light brown?). I’m really looking forward to trying out this recipe. I love ginger. Thanks.

Hi Dawn ! It is the all purpose flour (we in South-Africa know it as cake flour) and not self-raising flour. Let me know how yours turn out :-) (It is still after years my son's favorite Ginger Bread which he also bakes himself since school days)

Can you tell me if mixed spices is something you can purchase in the spice section at the grocery store? What spices are in it if I wanted to make it myself?
