As I mentioned the other day I love to bake over the festive period… There are so many festive treats that I absolutely love and make every year! I do love gingerbread men but this was actually the first time I have attempted to make them. I got my inspiration from the BBC here!
- 350g plain flour
- 125g unsalted butter
- 175g light brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoon of ginger
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
- 1 tablespoon of syrup
- Icing sugar to decorate
- Any cake decorations you fancy
In a separate bowl wisk the egg and sugar together and then add to the rest of the ingredients. Wisk together until a dough begins to form. Wrap the dough in a cling film and leave in the fridge for 15 minutes.
Take the dough out of the fridge and then roll it out using a rolling pin. I put flour down to ensure it didn’t stick to the chopping board.
I think gingerbread men are a festive baking essential! What are your favourite festive treats to make?
