Despite being sick, I was eager to try out my new beater blade and most likely, because I am sick, I have been craving carbohydrates!
I had just the recipe in mind when I hauled out my KitchenAid mixer and propped it in it’s rightful place on the countertop. One day, I tell you, I will have enough counter space for you to live here!
For some crazy reason, I have NEVER made Gingerbread before, and this recipe on Cassie’s Blog Bake Your Day definitely caught my eye. I had all of the ingredients in the house, even Greek yogurt, so after a long, hot shower to scrub off all the germs, I got to work in the kitchen.
I guess I should use the word ‘work’ rather lightly, as it seems my beater blade did all of the heavy lifting.
I even pulled out my fancy Cinnamon for the occasion.
This was definitely the lightest and fluffiest bread batter that I have ever made, so I just crossed my fingers that was how it was supposed to look as I placed my 4 mini loaf pans in the oven.
Originally, I had planned on making just one loaf, but knowing that the odds of me then proceeding to eat the entire loaf in one sitting were high, I switched to mini loaves.
Easy for sharing or freezing…thank you portion control!
While my bread baked, I kept busy in the kitchen moving form one cabinet to another for an intense mission of cleaning, organizing, and donating. A much overdue mission!
Since they were mini loaves, I baked them for 45 minutes instead of the full hour. So not my most beautiful looking loaves due to some flakey edges.
But a light textured and tasty bread, none the less!
This bread has an enjoyable gingerbread flavor with a tang from the Greek yogurt.
I recommend smothering it with whatever seasonable jams and jellies you have lying around and taking a sweet bite of the holiday season!
Or whipping up a batch for breakfast to enjoy with a hot mug of coffee or tea. Mmmm!
You can find Cassie’s recipe on Gimme Some Oven.
Note: I didn’t see where it said what to do with the spices so I stirred them into my flour mixture.
