I made this loaf today and it’s amazing. I topped it with vegan cream cheese. The only change was using coconut brown sugar instead of regular brown sugar. It was the perfect treat to have while decorating the tree. The house had this aroma of warm spices throughout. Lovely! I added a picture on Instagram and tagged you.

Maria Koutsogiannis

Yay!!! Lemme find it and share! Thank you so much for the love!

I happened to already have everything in my pantry just waiting for me to whip this gingerbread loaf up and WOW was I so glad I did! It is the perfect blend of spiced gingerbread flavor and the addition of the applesauce makes the loaf come out super moist. This will definitely be a dessert I will make every holiday season.

Maria Koutsogiannis

Yay, thank you so much for the love, Elena! This makes me so happy!
