    I made this at Christmas time and it was good! It held its structure perfectly which I was really happy about. Tastewise, it had a strong brown rice taste which I noticed but the kids thought it was still amazing! I coated the walls in dark chocolate to make it a bit more appealing. Thanks for the gluten free recipe!

    The icing turns out a light brown because of the raw sugar so I had to remake with a different version as I wanted it white.

  • Hi, I wouldn't keep it more

    Submitted by Nadine.thermomix on 16. November 2016 - 22:29.

    Hi, I wouldn't keep it more than a week, ideally the fresher it is made and eaten the less dry it will be, I wouldn't store it in the fridge, just in an airtight container unassembled til ready to use.

  • A few questions... How long

    Submitted by yasmine-b on 22. October 2016 - 13:41.

    A few questions... How long will this keep once assembled? Do I store it in the fridge? And is the gingerbread tasty (most gingerbread house recipes are quite dry)? Thank you for the recipe - I look forward to trying it out at Christmas!
