Do you ever get a craving for a thick slice of gingerbread slathered with butter? Oh, it must be just me! If you want a quick recipe, just chuck all these ingredients in a food processor and let electricity do all the work.

2 c flour (I used wholemeal)
3/4 c coconut sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp ground ginger
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg or allspice
1 c buttermilk or yoghurt (mixed with a little water if it's very thick)
1/2 c molasses
115g butter or coconut oil, melted
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 180C. Line a loaf tin with baking paper.

Put flour, sugar, baking soda and spices in a food processor and pulse until fully combined. Transfer into a bowl.
Put the rest of the ingredients into the food processor and blitz until smooth and blended. Put your flour mixture back into the food processor and blitz on low until it's fully combined into the batter.
Pour batter into your loaf tin and bake for 40 to 45 minutes until cooked through. Leave to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. This lasts well over several days; the molasses deepens in flavour.
