This cute mini gingerbread loaf is delicious and a great gift for friends.

Ingredients (makes 12 Mini loaves)

  • 125 grams Butter
  • 2/3 cup or 120 grams Golden syrup
  • 1/3 cup Brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup Plain flour
  • 1 Tbsp Ground ginger
  • 2 tsp Mixed spice
  • 2 Eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups Icing sugar, sifted
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees. Line or grease, mini loaf tin (I use my mini Christmas tree cake tin - see note).
  2. Stir butter, syrup and sugar in a saucepan over low heat until butter melts and mixture is smooth. Cool.
  3. In a large bowl combine flour, ginger and mixed spice. Add eggs, buttermilk and cooled mixture. Stir until combined. Spoon into mini loaf tin.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked. Cool on a wire rack.
  5. Add icing sugar and lemon juice together to make a runny paste. Spread over loaves, set aside to cool.

Notes... I like to bake these loaves in my mini Christmas tree cake tin. I think it would also be fine to bake in a normal loaf tin however, cooking time may require adjustment.

  • Yum! Not a huge fan of gingerbread but with the lemon icing it would be lovely. :)


  • I made these for the Kindy teachers. Thanks for sharing. Took a lot of pressure off me about what to get them.
