    Rachel-Snachel's Note:

    For those of you who may not like the very spicy, dark version so often served during the holidays, this loaf is lighter and very moist. A hint of orange is a wonderful addition, and the cream cheese icing is a perfect compliment. (Originally published by Veronica Hill.)

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F Grease and flour a 9-inch loaf pan, or even a square baking pan.
    2. 2
      In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and salt; set aside.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Dissolve baking soda into applesauce and mix into creamed butter. Add flour mixture. Mix until smooth.
    4. 4
      Pour the batter into a loaf pan.
    5. 5
      Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out just slightly sticky. (Be careful not to over bake, for this cake can dry out easily. Just remember that the toothpick shouldn't come out clean, but a little sticky).
    6. 6
      For the frosting, beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla. Gradually beat in the powdered sugar. Frost the cake when it is completely cooled. Decorate with chopped candied orange peel or candied ginger.

      An EGG. Thats what keeps it from sinking in the middle. I also tweeked it a bit by cutting down the sugar, (it way way too sweet) doing about an eigth teaspoon of clove and half the ginger, (the spices were overwhelming) and about 2 extra tablespoons flour (made it less dense and less "heavy". and yes, half the frosting would have been plenty.

      This is a wonderful tasting loaf and the icing is just yummy. However, I am wondering why the loaf sinks in the middle. Sometimes, it sinks during the last minutes of baking, sometimes it looks beautiful when I take them out and then it sinks. I even tried leaving it in the oven after turning the oven off, and it still sank in the middle. Is there anything that can be done to avoid this? One loaf a large hole in the middle and only the two ends could be used. Thanks for any input.

      We loved this ginger bread. It was a huge hit at the Christmas party I took it to. 4 loaves disappeared in 2 days. Very moist, love the orange flavor. Slices more easily after being refridgerated.
