As we all know, the Holiday Season is quickly approaching, so I thought I would do some festive cooking tutorials for you guys! Today I am making Gingerbread! I am thinking of doing a Christmas Series with cooking and decorating (let me know if you would like that). Before I get started, a quick shoutout to “Just Me Blog” because this is where I found this delicious recipe. Lets Begin!
How To: Make Gingerbread!
½ Cup- Brown Sugar
1- Egg Yolk
½ Cup- Golden Syrup
3 Cups- Plain or Self-Raising (I used SR flour)
1 tsp- Bicarb Soda (this is hidden at the back in the photo below)
1 and ½ Tbsp- Ground Ginger (you can add more)
½ Tbsp- All Spice
Baking Tray with Baking Paper
Put Brown Sugar and Butter in bowl and cream
Add in Egg Yolk into creamed Sugar and Butter mix, and combine
Add and mix in Golden Syrup to mixture
SIFT in flour
Add Bicarb, Allspice, Ginger and Cinnamon and combine all ingredients
Remove from bowl and knead mixture into a ball (I kneaded it on a pre-floured board)
Wrap Gingerbread mixture in cling wrap
Leave for AT LEAST 1 Hour in the fridge (can be made 2 days in advance)
Pre-Heat oven to 150 degrees (celsius)
Remove from fridge and sprinkle flour over a clean surface
Roll out dough to your preferred thickness (½ cm- 1cm)
Cut shapes in mixture and place on Baking Paper on the Baking Tray
Leave at least 1/2cm between cookies (for spreading reasons)
Place in oven for 10-25mins- until golden brown
Remove from oven and TA DA!! You have made your own Gingerbread! You can decorate them if you wish- but I prefer them plain! These Gingerbreads are so light and delicious- They are sure to be a hit this Christmas!
This Christmas I am going to try something new because I would love to see what you guys are doing and creating. If you have Instagram or Twitter and you find something on my blog that you like and recreate or just have some cool Christmas ideas you want to share, post it and Hashtag #Christmaswithjessamy and I’ll look through your guys’s posts!
Hope you all enjoyed this
Talk Soon xx
