Easy Orange Ginger Loaf

Like that chap from that movie who used to put Windex on everything, my mom believes that ginger is the solution to all problems. If we’ve got stomach woes, she tries to get us to eat ginger. If we are breaking out, she tries to convince us to drink ginger tea. If we complain about each other’s bad breath, she’s trying to force raw ginger down our throats…though, ginger breath is pretty ridic itself! The same goes for if we are feeling under the weather.
Speaking of feeling under the weather, have you noticed how as soon as a major event comes to pass (no matter if said major event was joyous or stressful) you tend to fall sick? Or, is that just me? During my move and even after, through all the unpacking, I felt like I was riding on an adrenaline wave! Then, as soon as the dust settled on the unpacked boxes, the sniffles started creeping in. And, o add to it, we are smack dab in the middle of germ season too!

Soup And Crackers

*Serving Suggestion

While I do heed my mom’s advice and sneak ginger into the foods I eat, I also like to head to Kroger and stock up on Campbell’s® soup, Lipton tea, Premium Crackers, Theraflu and TYLENOL® brands for any emergency cough, cold and flu situation! When I feel like I’m on the cusp of getting sick, I always crave comforting baked treats (maybe it’s because I grew up with a father who would often tell my sister and I to “feed a cold and starve a fever” – which wasn’t based on any scientific knowledge whatsoever).

    This turned out great! I was a tad short on OJ, so I added a bit of fresh lemon juice to keep the liquid level. It still came out extremely flavorful. I want to try to lower the sugar without sacrificing its deliciousness. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

  2. […] if you like this one, make sure to check out this Easy Orange Ginger Loaf […]

  3. […] Maximum Strength Honey Cough & Chest Congestion DM should not be used at the same time. Last year, Kroger was my go-to for cold/cough relief as […]

  4. Adina says:

    A perfect looking loaf, I would love a slice! Where was that Windex person, was it the Greek wedding movie? I have a scene in a car in my mind but I am not sure anymore, it was a long time ago. 🙂

  5. puja says:

    I do agree with your Mom that ginger is good for many things, My mom would always tell me to fry some ginger along with some garlic, onion, and ghee. And guess what? it used to be a very effective remedy for a cough. I always prefer to have strong ginger tea, whenever I am down with cold.
    But you know what, my daughter is totally opposite to me. She just doesn’t like ginger. In fact, if I cook something by adding ginger to it. She doesn’t prefer to eat that.
    BTW the orange ginger loaf sounds tasty… thanks for sharing…. Pinned 🙂

  6. Haha! Ginger is pretty amazing…though, I wauldn’t want to eat it raw! I remember several years ago we moved and it was literally right before Christmas. Hubby lost weight and I got a cold. It was rough trying to get everything done. We didn’t even have our tree decorated that year, but at least we were moved in, lol. I love orange in baked goods and paired with ginger, I bet it is AMAZING!! And sooooo much better than raw ginger, lol. Stay warm and well, my friend! XOXO

  7. Raw ginger? Umph. Although I do have to agree with your mom a bit on the ginger front. My belly was really mad at me over the weekend, and I sipped on a ginger ale…totally did the trick! But now I’m wishing I had a slice of this loaf cake alongside that ginger ale. It looks perfectly baked, Shashi! And the flavors sounds phenomenal. Thanks so for sharing…and for the reminder to stock up on Tylenol for the cold season! 🙂

  8. Ha ha, as much as I like ginger Shashi I think that forcing raw ginger down your throats to stop bad breath is a bit extremene! No, it’s definitely much, much better, and far more delicious and fun to eat slices of your Easy Orange Ginger Load I would think!

  9. Natalie says:

    I love orange and ginger together and this loaf looks so delicious!

  10. Ginger is the best! Haha. Especially when it’s sittin’ pretty in this seriously gorgeous loaf, Shashi! Even better–it’s so easy to make. I’ll be dreaming about a big ol’ slice all day long.

  11. Leslie says:

    This sounds wonderful. Orange pairs so beautifully with ginger. This looks like it has the texture of a pound cake. You really have come up with a great plan for colds with soup, tea, crackers and that delicious loaf!

  12. I’m definitely in the ‘feed a cold’ camp ~ and this gorgeous cake looks like the perfect way to do it!

  13. Lisa says:

    I had my flu shot this year and am keeping everything crossed that I don’t need an emergency flu kit — that said, I’d say this is a pretty comprehensive start. Except tomato soup — chicken noodle is the only way to go!

  14. I really don’t bake enough with ginger and I love ginger with orange. These products are everything I would need for when I’m feeling under the weather.

  15. Tara says:

    This loaf looks beautiful and such a great collection of products for when you are feeling under the weather. We always have ginger everything when we are sick too.

  16. Such a pretty, light and delicious loaf of cake!
