If you like Gingerbread, you are going to love this easy Thermomix Gingerbread Loaf!
I've already made this easy Thermomix Gingerbread Loaf three times since discovering the recipe a few weeks ago, it really is that good and my kids love it - as you can see!
We love this loaf when it's fresh from the oven and still a little warm but have also toasted it under the grill the next day and added some butter which is also all kinds of amazing. This Gingerbread Loaf makes a great treat and would also be perfect as a snack for Santa on Christmas Eve!
If you are looking for a Gingerbread CAKE recipe, this isn't for you, as this is a fudgey thick loaf and not light and fluffy like a cake - but don't worry it still is delicious!
