  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 250 g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 150 g light brown sugar
  • 50 g granulated sugar
  • 80 ml vegetable oil
  • 115 g cream cheese softened
  • 120 ml buttermilk*
  • 42 g unsalted butter
  • 125 g icing sugar
  • 55 g cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 350F/176C. Spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together until combined.
In a medium bowl, cream together the eggs, sugar, oil, and cream cheese. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently mix together. Add the buttermilk, and mix until just combined. Do not over-mix.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Cover loosely with aluminium foil, and bake for 50 - 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean with only a few small moist crumbs. Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before removing and frosting.

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, cream cheese, icing sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Spread evenly over the gingerbread loaf, then slice and serve.
