When we were reading the book Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett, I pulled this together one morning for breakfast with the kids by combining a few recipes and making due with what I had on hand. It is one that we’ll make again during the holidays and fills the house with a definite ‘holiday’ cheer. The kids loved it as our breakfast.

 

Cream Cheese Ginger Bread

Ingredients:

{for filling}
~ 8 oz. cream cheese, softened

~ 1 cup sugar

~ 1/3 cup flour

~ 1 egg

 

{for batter}

~ 3 cups flour

~ 3/4 cup sugar

~ 1 1/2 tsp baking soda & salt

~ 1 tsp. ginger

~ 2 eggs

~ 3/4 cup milk and oil

~ 1/3 cup molasses

~ 1 cup chopped pecans

 

Directions:

1. Mix ingredients for filling together well and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, combine flour and other dry ingredients. Sift together well. In a separate bowl, beat together egg, milk, oil, and molasses. Stir into dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in nuts.
3. Pour 1/3 - 1/2 of batter into a well-greased bundt pan. Spoon filling mixture over top of the batter. Cover filling with remaining batter.

4. Bake at 350 for 45 - 50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool for about 10 minutes and invert on a cooling rack.

5. Dust with powdered sugar.

Note: I used whole wheat flour and coconut oil in my baking and loved the results! Recipe card here.
