Ingredients

12 piece(s)

  • 380 g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 100 g brown sugar

  • 130 g golden syrup

  • 1 egg yolk

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.

  2. Place all ingredients into mixing bowl and mix 12 sec/speed 6, then knead         50 sec/Dough mode.

  3. Transfer gingerbread mixture onto a lightly floured ThermoMat or work surface and shape into a smooth ball. Transfer mixture into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place into refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill.

  4. Place chilled gingerbread mixture between two sheets of baking paper and roll out to a 4mm thickness. Remove top layer of baking paper, then using a cookie cutter, cut out desired shapes (e.g. gingerbread people, stars, hearts, Christmas trees).

  5.  Place gingerbread shapes onto prepared baking tray and bake for 10 minutes (180°C) until lightly golden. Allow to cool slightly, then transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely. Decorate shapes as desired, then serve or store in an airtight container.

Tip

This recipe produces approximately 12-18 gingerbread biscuits. This number could vary depending on the size and shape of your cookie cutter.

Tips:

  • To decorate, use the Royal icing recipe in The Basic Cookbook or Everyday Cookbook.
  • If using the gingerbread for decorating your Christmas tree, use a drinking straw to punch a hole at the top of the biscuit prior to baking so a ribbon can be threaded through for hanging once cooled.

    Hi

    This should fit the mould, but once you receive the mould it should have a gingerbread recipe with it that has been designed to fit the mould.

    Kind Regards

    Submitted by sallydz on 17. June 2017 - 10:29.

    Mixed sugar, golden syrup and butter at 70 degrees for 2 minutes first, then added the rest. Not crumbly at all, turned out perfectly. Making and icing gingerbread ends up taking a while but a fun activity with the kids. Very much enjoyed.

    Great recipe. Made heaps of Christmas shapes! Perfect to use just the egg yolk because you can reserve the egg white to use in the Royal Icing from Basic cookbook to decorate.

    Easy to make & taste awesome. As we didn't have time to ice them, we added mini m&m's as decorations before we cooked them.. Added great colour to them  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by kennedyrh on 21. December 2014 - 16:07.

    Easy to make and very yummy. I made 1 batch as above and found the dough a bit crumbly but it came together fine in the end, however I ran out of golden syrup for the second batch and substituted molasses instead. This dough was easier to work with, not crumbly at all and just as tasty. With the molasses it is a darker gingerbread. My 6 year old is looking forward to decorating them tonight!
