Here is a great recipe for one of our favourite loaves. I'm pretty sure it will become a favourite of yours too.
Prep time: 15 min. Total time: 3 hrs. 55 min (includes cooling time)
Makes 1 loaf
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter or marg, softened
1/2 cup prepared tea or water (I use decaf chai)
1/3 cup milk
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. ground cardamom (found it in the ethnic foods at superstore)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
3-5 tsp. milk
additional ground cinnamon
1) Heat oven to 350 F. Grease loaf pan with cooking spray.
2) In large bowl, beat sugar & butter with electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Beat in eggs, tea, milk, & vanilla on low speed until ingredients are well combined (will appear curdled) . Stir in remaining bread ingredients just until moistened. Spread in pan.
3) Bake 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean (do not underbake). Cool 10 minutes in pan on wire rack. Loosen sides of loaf from pan; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool 30 minutes.
4) In small bowl, stir powdered sugar, vanilla, & 3 tsp. of the milk, adding more milk by the teaspoonfuls, until spreadable. Spread glaze over bread. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon. Cool completely, about 2 hours, before slicing. Wrap tightly & store at room temperature up to 4 days, or refrigerate up to 10 days.
