  • Combine flour, ground ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a bowl.

  • Cream sugar and butter in a large bowl with an electric blender until light and fluffy; stir in 1 teaspoon orange extract. Mix baking soda into applesauce and stir into butter mixture. Add flour mixture and mix until batter is smooth. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into center of a loaf comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack until cool, about 1 hour.

  • Combine cream cheese, vanilla extract, and 1/2 teaspoon orange extract in a bowl; beat with an electric mixer until well combined. Beat in confectioners' sugar gradually. Spread frosting over cooled loaves. Decorate with crystallized ginger.

Cook's Note:

You can also use chopped candied orange peel to decorate the ginger loaf.
