Out of all the breads available, I would say banana bread is one of the nationwide popular ones and I have a good one that is really popular and is moist and nutted up with almonds (is nutted up a term)? It’s almond banana bread, you must give it a try.
This bread has a lovely ingredient added that brings and enhances the ginger flavor, candied ginger. It is chopped small, but the little chewy pieces are so good.
How to make Carrot Ginger Spiced Bread with Orange Glaze – Step by Step
When baking, the dry ingredients get mixed first. In this case, the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg and allspice.
To a separate bowl the wet ingredients, butter, sugar and eggs are mixed.
The dry ingredients are added to the wet in batches alternating with flour and milk until well combined.
The freshly grated carrots are added, mixed, then nutty pecans and the wonderful ingredient of candied ginger.
This is mixed and poured into a buttered loaf pan and baked for 1 hour 10 minutes until golden and when a toothpick is inserted it comes out clean. This time can vary depending on the calibration of your oven. This is a good time to make the easy orange glaze and once the bread is cooled, just drizzle over and enjoy.
