As we head towards Yule, it’s time to introduce my daughter to the wonderful world of gingerbread! Some ginger here…some cinnamon there…my favourite time of the year!
Suddenly realised I had not got a single recipe for gingerbread in the house, only to find the one I was thinking of on the BBC website here
It breaks down to this:
- 350g of plain flour
- Bicarbonate of soda -1 tsp
- ground ginger -2 tsp
- ground cinnamon -1 tsp
- butter 125g butter
- light soft brown sugar -175g
- 1 egg
- golden syrup -4 tsp
-start by mixing the flour, soda, cinnamon and sugar together until they reach a breadcrumb consistency.
-beat the egg and syrup together, then add to the mix. Roll the dough into a ball and put in the fridge for 15 mins
-roll the dough out. Cut and decorate your little men!
-15 mins in the oven until lightly brown. Cool and serve!
Of course, I don’t actually weigh anything- rather go with what feels right.
I’ll post a pic if they turn out good!
