Weekend Baking | Gingerbread


Gingerbread is a such a classic thing to make at this time of year and something that I hadn't baked in ages! I definitely needed to remedy that and so, earlier this week, I gave it a go. There are a few more ingredients than a regular biscuit mix but that's needed to get the typical gingerbread taste. Read on to check out some more pictures and find out how to make them...



You Will Need
325g of Plain Flour
100g of Unsalted Butter
150g of Light Brown Sugar
4tbsps of Golden Syrup
1tbsp of Ground Ginger
White Icing
1 Egg

To Make
1) In a large mixing bowl, rub the butter, flour and ground ginger together until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs
2) Stir in the sugar, golden syrup and egg until the mixture looks like a dough
3) Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes or until the biscuit dough is cold
4) Roll out the dough and, using cutters, cut out the shapes you want. Put them onto a tray lined with greaseproof paper
5) Bake in the oven at 180° for 15 minutes or until golden brown
6) Once the biscuits have cooled, ice designs onto them with your white icing


Have you made gingerbread before?
