Recipe's preparation

    Mixing dough in the Thermomix
  1. Add dark brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, cream and golden syrup to the Thermomix Bowl.  Set temperature to 90 degrees, 7 min, speed 1.

    Add butter. Set temperature to 60 degrees, 1-2 min (or until melted), speed 2.

    Mix bicarb soda and milk in a small bowl and add to Thermomix bowl.

    Add 500g flour.  Speed 5 until mixed.

  2. Additional mixing in a normal bowl
  3. Remove dough from Thermomix bowl and put it in a normal bowl.

    Add 100g flour and stir through the mixture with wooden spoon or similar.

  4. Kneeding on the benchtop
  5. Put some of the remainding flour on the benchtop.

    Transfer dough from bowl to benchtop.

    With hands incorporate the rest of the flour and kneed until you have a smooth dough that doesn't stick to the benchtop or your hands.

    Divide the dough into two.

    Put the dough in plastic zip lock bags and put in fridge for atleast 24hrs.

  6. Making gingerbread biscuits
  7. Set oven to 170 degrees.

    Take out some of the dough from the fridge.

    Use a rolling pin and roll the dough until it is 1-2mm thick. (you may need to use some additional flour to dust the bench top and the pin).

    Use your favorite ginger bread cutter.

    Put ginger bread on tray lined with baking paper and bake for approx 10 min then transfer onto cooling rack.

    Repeat process with leftover dough.



Depending on the oven the cooking time can vary between 7-11min.  It is a very fine line between getting the desired crunch and burning the gingerbread so be careful and keep a close eye on them.

    These were just beautiful. I was very busy leading up to Christmas, and the mixture was left in the fridge a couple of days before I got back to it. It was fine. Made lovely biscuits. I decorated with dr Oetker icing in tube, bought from my local supermarket. This, once mastered, gave a professional finish.
    many thanks for a great recipe. Will definitely become a favourite.
