Ingredients for Eggless Ginger Loaf

I used to make this ginger loaf a lot when the children were little. It was easy to make and something substantial for them, sliced and buttered. One of my nephews was extremely allergic to egg, so he didn't have to miss out, when I had this on hand.

Ingredients


1/4 lb or 125gm of butter

1 cup sugar

1 tbsp golden syrup

1 cup of milk

2 small tsp baking soda

2 tsp ginger

1 tsp cinnamon

pinch of salt

2 large cups of flour

Method

  1. Melt butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan on the stove. If you prefer you can melt these ingredients in the microwave in a microwave suitable bowl.
  2. Dissolve the baking soda in the milk.
  3. Combine dry ingredients together.
  4. Now mix in alternate amounts of milk/baking soda mixture and dry ingredients.
  5. Pour into a lightly greased loaf tin.
  6. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit for around 50 to 60 minutes, or until a skewer when inserted into loaf comes out clean.

This loaf usually takes a little under an hour to cook, but depending on your oven - mine is not a fan bake, it could take less time. It might pay to keep an eye on it for the first time. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have over the years.

      Thanks Blond Logic. I am glad you like the recipe. Of course you could always add an egg if you wanted however it taste good without it.

      I love ginger but have never used it when making a bread, usually only in my stir-frys. This is a recipe I will have to try. I was surprised to see how high it raised without egg.

      When I lived in the UK I ate a lot of ginger cake, cookies etc but here in Brazil, they don't have those. Now I make all our cakes, cookies and bread. This one will get added to my repertoire. Thanks

      Its much better for everyone too isn't it as you know what you have put in it. No additives etc. I would like to bake my own more often. Must make an effort.

      Thanks KoffeeKlatch Gals. I have often thought of cooking with stevia, but never actually done so. Great idea.

      tebo this looks like a really good recipe. Exchange sugar for stevia and a diabetic such as I can eat it.

      Hi peachpurple and thanks for your comments. Can't imagine not liking ginger! And it is good for you. However vanilla might work. Thanks for the follow.

      Hi rajan jolly. Yes I see you have read it before. Thanks for linking it to your hub. I take it you mean a link to a hub on ginger rather than grapefruit. I must read your grapefruit hub as I have one on Grapefruit too. Thanks for all the shares. Appreciate it very much.

      Thanks RTalloni. Yes I love ginger too, and it is supposed to be very good for us so that's an advantage. Good luck for the GF/DF conversion. Sounds like you are a bit of an expert in that department so shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for reading.

      Ooooh, ginger bread! This looks wonderful and I'll be trying it out soon. Though I will adjust to make it GF and cow milk free, this recipe looks like that will be very easy to do. Love ginger and this will be a different way to enjoy it!

      thanks tebo. I could add honey but I'd have preferred to use the original-golden syrup. Thanks for the clarification.

      Thanks rajan jolly for commenting and voting and pinning. Golden syrup is the next refining after treacle I think. It goes molasses, treacle, golden syrup. Honey might do. I will have to check that out. It is possibly called something else in other parts of the world.

      Excellent, I needed an eggless recipe for gingerbread and this fits the bill perfectly. Tebo, just wanna know what golden syrup is, since I haven't seen it here. Or if there is any replacement for it?

      Excellent pictures and the loaf looks delicious.

      Voted up, useful and interesting. Pinning.

      Thanks for your comments yougotme. This is not a bread loaf but rather a cake type loaf. I guess I could be a bit more specific with the instructions. I shall go back and check them. Thanks for pointing that out.

      Interesting! It's my first time to hear ginger as an ingredient for a bread! The procedures seem easy to be followed, but I guess more details will help such as tips and etc.

      Voted up!

      This ginger loaf recipe looks really good. The image of the ginger loaf looks tasty and delicious and now I want to have some. It doesn't seem all that hard to make and it's good that it doesn't take too much time.
