Tips  

Gingerbread has been a holiday specialty for centuries. During the middle ages, ladies presented this spiced bread to dashing knights going into tournament battle.

Since this recipe makes two loaves, your family can enjoy one and the other can be given as a gift. Cover the loaf with plastic wrap, then wrap with decorative paper and a bright bow.
