  • 1 bread loaf pan


Gingerbread Loaf

  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • cup molasses
  • ½ cup vanilla yogurt
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • cup all purpose flour
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Maple Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk or heavy cream
  • 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease a loaf pan. Add parchment paper for easy removal from the loaf pan.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, add the butter, sugar, molasses, eggs, yogurt, and pumpkin puree. Mix until well combined.
    If you do not have a mixer, you may easily do this by hand with a whisk.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt to the mixer and whisk until fully combined.
  • Pour batter into the greased loaf pan.
  • Bake in your preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until the loaf is done and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Let the loaf cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk your glaze ingredients. You might need to use a hand held electric mixer to get all of the lumps out and make a smooth glaze.
  • Pour the glaze over the cooled gingerbread loaf and enjoy!


Let the loaf cool before icing it so the glaze will harden on top.
