Speaking of spices, this gingerbread includes all of the right Autumn spices for the season. This warm bread will surely keep you cozy on a cold day!
This recipe will yield two bread loaves that are infused with cannabis. Don’t forget to mention that if you serve them out to guests!
For infusion, we will be using cannabis coconut oil.
Here’s what you will need to make these bread loaves:
- 1 cup of cannabis coconut oil
- 3 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour (unbleached)
- 2 teaspoons of baking soda
- 3 cups of sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 2 teaspoons of ground ginger
- 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
- 15 oz. can of pureed pumpkin
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
- 2/3 cup of water
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons of applesauce
- non-stick cooking spray
- 2 bread loaf pans (1 also works, only takes more time)
Step 1: Prepare
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F (176 C). While the oven preheats, prepare the bread loaf pans by spraying them with cooking spray. If you are doing this with only one bread loaf pan, simply respray the first pan after making the first loaf. Next, pour the coconut canna oil into a small saucepan and melt it over low heat until it is completely liquified.
Step 2: Mix
Grab a large bowl and toss in the eggs, applesauce, sugar, water, and vanilla extract. Mix them up completely until well combined. Then, pour in the melted canna coconut oil and mix that in as well. Once that is mixed, toss in the ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pureed pumpkin. Mix again until combined.
Step 3: Combine
Take a separate small bowl and combine the baking powder, baking soda, flour, and salt. Mix them well together. Use a fork for mixing. Now, slowly add this dry mix to the wet mix in the larger bowl. Make sure to mix the batter well after adding in each portion of the dry mix. Add in these portions until all of the dry mix has been added.
Step 4: Pour
Dividing the batter in half as best as you can, pour the combined mix onto each prepped bread loaf pan. Once the batter has been poured, gently tap and wiggle the pans to allow any air bubbles to come to the surface. This will prevent any air bubbles from creating large holes in the middle of the bread loaves while baking.
Step 5: Bake
Now place the bread loaf pans into your preheated oven and allow them to cook for about one hour. They will be done when you can stick a toothpick in the center of the bread and it comes out clean. Rotate the loaves halfway through cooking to ensure even baking. Once the loaves are done, remove them from the oven and leave them in their pans for 10 minutes to cool.
