    Somogirl's Note:

    For serious gingerbread fans. A dark bread full of wonderful taste and a light texture. The complex flavors rely more on spice than sugar, not too sweet. Your house will smell wonderful while it bakes in the oven! This makes 1 9x 4x 2 1/2 loaf or about 4 mini-loaves. I came across this recipe in 1993 but I don't recall where.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Lightly butter loaf pan, line bottom with parchment or wax paper. Butter paper, dust pan with flour; set aside.
    3. 3
      In a large mixing bowl cream butter, molasses, honey and brown sugar with electric mixer until smooth. Add eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition. Add sour cream, lemon zest and vanilla; beat to combine (it may separate slightly and look funny but don't worry).
    4. 4
      Sift flour, baking soda, salt and spices. Fold into batter with rubber spatula.
    5. 5
      Spread batter in prepared pan.
    6. 6
      Bake until toothpick comes out clean, about 55-60 minutes. If using mini-loaf pans bake time about 30 minutes.
    7. 7
      Cool in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Turn out out of pan and peel off paper. If not serving immediately, cool completely before wrapping.
    8. 8
      If you wanted to gild the lily you could drizzle a lemon glaze over the top or frost with a cream cheese frosting or some good ole whipped cream would be marvelous.

      Clear instructions, easy to make, and very tasty, a moist yet like cake. I put pineapple and raisins in the bottom of the pan, like an upside down cake. I used corn syrup instead of honey, and mace instead of allspice, just because that was what I had.
