Gingerbread Loaf

Enjoy this old-fashioned ginger loaf recipe originally from Holland. This moist spicy bread smells delicious while it's baking...and slices are wonderful spread with cream cheese. The recipe makes two big loaves, so we have one to eat and one to freeze for later...or to give away. -Martina Biemond, Rosedale, British Columbia
