  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    To make the icing, whisk the egg white until foamy and opaque, then whisk in the icing sugar and enough lemon juice to make a drizzling consistency. When the loaves have cooled, drizzle with lemon icing and decorate with ginger slices and chopped nuts.
