DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F Line a 9 x 4 inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, crystallized ginger, ground ginger, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg).
  • In another bowl, beat butter and granulated sugar until fluffy, then stir in molasses. Add eggs one at a time, beating continuously.
  • Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture in 3 additions, alternating with the yogurt/buttermilk and beginning and ending with the flour; mix until smooth.
  • Pour the batter into the pan and spread until even and sprinkle with raw sugar.
  • Bake 50 minutes or just until the gingerbread is golden and springy to the touch, and a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let the loaf stand for a few minutes, then turn the loaf out and carefully peel off the parchment paper. Serve warm, or later!
