A Different Kind Of Gingerbread

Gingerloaf

(NC) – Take a crack at this one. Colourful wooden nutcrackers have long graced German homes. Carved and painted into the shapes of soldiers and kings, they were the inspiration for Hoffmann’s much-loved Christmas story, The Nutcracker. The wonderful aroma of freshly baked gingerbread is also a German holiday tradition that has influenced Canadian kitchens. Cap off an evening at the theatre in royal fashion with this exquisitely moist and flavourful ginger-walnut loaf.
