Deliciously moist ginger pumpkin bread smothered in a maple brown butter icing.
FOR THE BREAD:
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
- 1¼ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light-brown sugar packed
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 3 large eggs
FOR THE GLAZE:
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup real maple syrup
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup powdered sugar more or less if needed
- 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- heavy cream only if need to thin out icing
- 1 pinch kosher salt
MAKE THE GINGER PUMPKIN BREAD:
Preheat oven to 375°.
Grease a 8x5 loaf pan; either lightly butter or spray with baking spray and then dust wit flour (tap out any excess flour and discard), set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, ginger, and salt.
Then in a large bowl, whisk together sugars, pumpkin, melted (cooled) butter, and eggs. Pour this into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
Spoon batter into the prepared pan. Bake on the middle rack for 40-45 minutes or until a cake tester is inserted into the center and comes out clean with only a few crumbs attached.
Let cool 10 minutes before carefully removing and transferring the ginger bread to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once cool, drizzle with the maple brown butter icing.
MAKE THE MAPLE BROWN BUTTER ICING:
Heat the butter in a small skillet over medium heat until golden brown in color.
Turn off the heat and add in the maple syrup, whisking constantly until the bubble subside.
Gradually add and whisk in the powdered sugar until you reach the desired consistency.
If too thick, you can thin out with milk.
Lastly add a pinch of kosher salt and a splash of vanilla.
Drizzle warm icing over cooled cake. Slice and serve!
