In Castleford, Idaho, Gladys De Boer makes this moist, spicy bread often during the busy Christmas season. "I wrap it and allow it to ripen for a day before slicing," she informs. "Serve it with cream cheese to enhance the old-fashioned gingerbread flavor."

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine corn syrup, brown sugar and egg; mix well. Combine dry ingredients; add to the egg mixture alternately with milk and mix well. Pour into a greased waxed paper-lined 9x5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 325° for 80-90 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from the pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Wrap and let stand for 24 hours before slicing.
