I have never bought a slice of gingerbread loaf from Starbucks, but heard good reviews about it. To me they are way too expensive. So I went on the internet and found a few recipes. Mixed and matched, and here is the result. I have been told it taste pretty darn close to the real thing.


    For the Gingerbread Loaf
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract, optional
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • For the Frosting:
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • Candied ginger, chopped in small squares


  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. In a medium bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. (First 5 ingredients)

    It was very moist. The cream cheese is a nice touch.
