Recipe: Delicious Gingerbread

This was meant to be a post about my perfectly assembled, made from scratch gingerbread house.. Unfortunately, I only got as far as putting the roof on before it collapsed!

Gingerbread is so easy to make (if you're not making a house!) and the perfect gift if you are needing something last minute for the foodie in your life.


180g Butter/Stork
125g Brown Sugar
300g Golden Syrup
500g Plain Flour
1/4 tsp  Salt
2 heaped tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp Bicarbonate Soda
Extra flour for rolling


Preheat oven to gas mark 3/170°C.

Melt the butter over a low heat then add the sugar and syrup and stir until dissolved.

Add the dry ingredients and mix until blended into a thick dough.

Put a sheet of baking paper on your work surface and roll the dough to approximately 5mm thick.

Flour your cutters, and cut out as many characters/shapes as you can.

Transfer the baking paper onto the baking tray, making sure there is enough space between the shapes.

Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until firm to the touch as the dough will crisp as it cools.

Carefully lift on to a wire rack and leave to cool.

Once cooled, decorate as you see fit and enjoy with the most luxurious hot chocolate for that extra bit of indulgence.

Let me know in the comments if you try this recipe.

Love, Jo.
