Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Iced Ginger Bread Loaf. I made this delicious gingerbread loaf for my Dad a couple of weeks ago. He came to give me a lift to the pre-operation clinic and I decided to make him a cake as a thank you. The gingerbread is perhaps a bit of a wintery feel but the weather has been cold and wet here for what seems like ages.

I seem to have reverted back to winter recipes quite a lot recently. Last night I made a delicious rhubarb and apple crumble. It is a really old recipe but I’ve the opportunity to rephotograph it. When I get round to it I’ll update the recipe and share it with you all.
