Bake: Apple, Pecan and Gingerbread Loaf

I made this cake for a special occasion last week, when Evie and I were lucky enough to have Jo and Ruby over for a play date. I was inspired when reading this month’s Delicious Magazine. As you know, I am a fan of the gingerbread (and here) and I just love desserts and sweet treats with apples in them. Please meet the Apple, Pecan and Gingerbread Loaf

– The original recipe –

– My starting point –

– All chopped up –

– Dry ingredients to start with –

– Melting butter, sugar and golden syrup to then add to dry ingredients –

– Evie helping with the melted wet ingredients –

– All mixed together –

– Ready for the oven. I used a lamington tin as my loaf tins are packed away –

– Fresh out of the oven…yum! –

– Perfect with a yummy herbal tea –

This was another success. Jo said she liked it (good news) and Husband ate in within the 36 hours that it was baked – not a bad effort really!

Do you have an ingredient that always inspires you to bake? Or an event that you love to bake for?
