Gingerbread Loaf

Posted by on

With a Scottish mum, warm gingerbread was a regular snack in our home growing up.  The smell is almost as good as the taste with the aroma of a delicious blend of spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon & cloves wafting through the house.   This is my gluten free version - it can be made with grass fed butter if you are not after a vegan option.
