Trader Joe’s Gingerbread

Ginger is one of my favorite flavors.

One day, while walking through Trader Joe’s, they had samples of this gingerbread.  It can be made in a loaf pan (as I made it), in a cake pan or you can make cookies from it.

I like it because it doesn’t have very many ingredients to add to it, i.e. 1 egg, 1/3 cup vegetable oil and 3/4 cup water.  Besides it being tasty, it is easy to make.

The mix is light brown and is not lumpy.

Once all of the ingredients are blended together, the batter is smooth and looks a chocolatey dark brown.  You can really smell the ginger!

I poured my batter (mix) in a loaf (bread) pan as I didn’t have a cake pan.  The recipe calls for an 8x8x2 pan but you can use a loaf (bread) pan also.  If you decide to use a loaf (bread) pan, it will take longer to bake as the mix will be denser so after the initial 30 minutes, make sure you keep your eye on the bread.  A toothpick or knife inserted in the middle of the mix should come out clean when you test it.

The final product looks and tastes good.  

Although I prefer to make my food from scratch, occasionally I like to make something that’s quick and tasty to supplement another meal.  This one fits perfectly with a good soup or eaten by itself.
Enjoy!
