Blogmas Day Three - Gingerbread


So this is day three of blogmas and we know that everyone is getting their christms food ready and so we wanted to share with you some of our ideas for Christmas recipes that we love to make.

First of all is Gingerbread. We love gingerbread and so we make it every Christmas. So here is the recipe we use for our gingerbread:
  • Light brown sugar
  • golden syrup
  • water
  • ground cinnamon
  • ground ginger
  • butter/ vegan butter
  • bicarbonate of soda
  • plain flour.
First you will need to measure out 75g of light brown sugar and then add to a saucepan. next we add 3 tablespoons of golden syrup you can substitute one tablespoon of golden syrup for black treacle but we couldn't find any so we just added an extra tablespoon of golden syrup and it taste the same. Then ass one tablespoon of water and one teaspoon of cinnamon and one teaspoon of ginger. You can add extra ginger if you wanted depending on how much ginger you like in your gingerbread. Put the saucepan on to heat and allow the ingredients to warm. Then add 95g of butter or vegan butter and mix. You will need to continuously stir this as you don't want it to burn and then add half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda.

Then gradually add 250g of flour to the saucepan with the saucepan off the heat. It should form a ball of dough and leave to cool. You can then roll out the dough and use any cookie cutters you like for your gingerbread. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

 Cook for 10 - 15 minutes. You can then ice and decorate your biscuits as you please and that will leave you with your gingerbread.
