Orange Glazed Ginger Loaf Cake

 A gorgeous ginger spiced loaf cake with a zesty orange glaze!

I don't know about you but when I wrote 'ginger spiced' above I immediately thought of THE ginger spice. However no Union Jack dresses will be featuring in this post today I'm afraid! With this beautiful cake however, its the perfect cake I expect one to have with tea in the afternoon. it's simple, nothing too dramatic (except the little gingerbread men sprinkles) and its flavour packs a punch for those festive feels. It's the cake you need in the lead up to Christmas, I like my kitchen to be smelling ginger and that sweet sticky treacle and this does just that. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did!

Ingredients

Cake
275g Self-raising flour
150g Dark brown sugar
3g Baking powder
15g Ground ginger
2g Mixed spice
Pinch of salt
70ml soya milk
60g Treacle or molasses
70g Applesauce
100ml Vegan butter, melted
Glaze
150g Icing sugar
4tbsp Orange juice
2-3tbsp hot water if needed
Glacé ginger optional
Sprinkles optional 

Method

✿Preheat the oven to 170℃ and grease and line a 2lb loaf tin with baking paper.
In a large bowl add the dry ingredients and mix well. In a separate bowl whisk together the treacle, butter and applesauce. 
Then add this to the bowl and whisk.  Add the soya milk gradually whilst mixing to slowly loosen the cake batter. 
Spoon the cake batter into the prepared cake tin and bake for 35-40 minutes being careful not to burn the top. 
Leave to cool completely in the tin before glazing. 
To make the glaze simply mix in the orange juice with the icing sugar. At first it will be quite clumpy but keep mixing. If the glaze needs to be loose, add some hot water until the glaze is smooth and pourable but not too runny or transparent as it will slide right off the cake. 
Coat the cake in the glaze and sprinkle on some of the glacé ginger if using. Best kept at room temperature up to 3 days. Enjoy!
