  1. Sounds so delicious, I can’t wait to try it. Pinned and shared

  2. Oh yum, this sounds so delicious! Bread always makes the house smell so good, and I’m sure this one even more so.

  3. Great for breakfast when you’re too lazy to make yourself some, haha! I love having those sweet loafs at any time! 🙂

  4. Linda peck says:

    One question, do you cool bread, then remove from pan, and then add icing? Wondering how you sliced bread while in the pan, that can ruin slices can’t it?
    Thank you.
    Linda

    • Linda, this one shows icing was added in pan. Some is left behind though, and yes, the slices can be less than firm that way. You could remove the bread from the pan first (use a butter knife to loosen the sides), and then add the icing – but the icing will drip down, so make sure you have put the bread on a cutting board or plate first. Or, you could remove the gingerbread, slice it, plate it, and then drizzle some icing on the cut piece (this assumes you are serving most/all the bread at one time).

      I hope you enjoy!

  5. What can I substitute dark molasses for?
