I love traditional gingerbread, I wanted to create a lightened-up loaf recipe which can be tricky because for me gingerbread should have molasses in it to get that true flavor, and well we all know molasses is like a gazillion points! This recipe is a prime example of sometimes just a little is enough. The loaf was so easy to whip up and I was able to get it to just 5SP per serving (on all programs) even with that sweet molasses in it.

  1. This looks delicious. Thank you. I add a little lemon zest to my gingerbread cookie recipe and it makes the flavor amazing. Have you tried that?
