You'd think I miss "The Open Line" or something! I got the chance to talk to Olivia Nichols of NestFresh Eggs (@NestFreshEggs), and she gave me two MORE recipes I can share with you!
NestFresh’s Toffee and Almond Gingerbread Loaf
•2 cups all-purpose flour
•1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
•1 tsp baking soda
•1/2 tsp each salt and ground cinnamon
•1/4 tsp each baking powder, ground nutmeg and cloves
•1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
•1/2 cup packed brown sugar
•3 NestFresh eggs
•2 tsp vanilla extract, divided
•1/2 cup molasses
•1/2 cup buttermilk
•1/3 cup toffee pieces
•1 cup icing sugar
•5 tsp 2% milk
•1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds
1.Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and line a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper. Whisk together flour, ginger, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, nutmeg and cloves; set aside.
2.Using an electric mixer, beat butter with brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time and scrape down sides of bowl as necessary, until combined.
3.Beat in half of the vanilla; beat in molasses. Gradually add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, starting and ending with flour mixture, mixing just until combined. Fold in toffee pieces.
4.Scrape batter into prepared pan; smooth top. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer pan to rack; let cool completely.
5.Remove loaf from pan. Whisk together icing sugar, milk and remaining vanilla; drizzle over loaf. Sprinkle with almonds. Let stand until icing sets. Wrap and store at room temperature for up to 2 days or wrap in heavy-duty foil and freeze for up to 2 weeks.
