I love to give neighbors and friends homemade treats for Christmas.  Most folks are so busy these days that homemade baked goods are a treat.  I have found that this Gingerbread loaf recipe is perfect for making in double batches so I can make a bunch of loaves for gifts all at one time.  It’s a delicious recipe that it easy to make, easy to multiply the recipe and easy  to give as a gift.

3 loaves of gingerbread cooking on a wire rack

 I like to wrap the loaves in colored plastic wrap and either tie with a festive ribbon or slip into one of my upcycled fabric gift bags.  Your neighbors and friends will appreciate receiving this delicious  and festively wrapped gingerbread loaf as a holiday gift.  And you’ll appreciate how easy it is to make and make in large quantities (for all those friends you have!).
