Seeking recipe for "gingerbread"-flavoured loaf cake

I'm used to gingerbread baked in standard layer cake pan. As I finished up a load of banana bread the other day, I wondered about a gingerbread-flavoured loaf cake.

Just a nice simple quick bread type loafcake: molasses and the standard "gingerbread spices". No honey, part bottles of stout, chocolate, pumpkin puree, or rye flour.

Can anyone recommend a good reliable recipe?

Thank you!
