A few months ago I pinned a recipe on Pinterest for a Gingerbread loaf. It was frosted with cream cheese frosting. I imagined that it would be a delicious moist loaf sort of like banana bread but gingerbread. I finally got around to adding the couple of ingredients I don’t normally have on hand to the grocery list and picked them up this week.
I should have looked at the comments and read a few more recipes before I jumped in with both feet. The loaf was ok but looked nothing like the photo on the blog where the recipe is located. I could see in the photo that it would have a small dip at the center, probably because of the lack of baking powder. But the color was wrong, it’s really light. It’s not super moist as it appears. My guess is the photo isn’t even a loaf made from the recipe. I didn’t bother making the frosting. We’ll eat the ok loaf as it is and I’ll find a different recipe to use the cream cheese frosting. Disappointing!
