Something to Crunch this Christmas

Updated: Feb 25

Christmas is coming and what better way to celebrate than a festive snack! Here's the ultimate gingerbread recipe this season. For any extra details- visit BBC GoodFood (where the recipeis from).


What will you need?

225g plain flour, plus extra for dusting

½ tsp salt

2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 heaped tsp ground ginger

½ tsp cinnamon

50g unsalted butter

100g soft brown sugar

100g golden syrup


Method

1) Heat oven to 180C fan/gas 5 and line a baking tray with baking parchment or grease proof paper.

2) Sieve the flour, salt, bicarb, ginger and cinnamon into a large bowl.

3) Heat the butter, sugar and syrup until dissolved in a separate bowl, don't mix yet!

4) Leave the sugar mixture to cool slightly, then mix into the dry ingredients to form a dough.

5) Chill the dough in the fridge for 30 mins- if you're in a hurry this stage wont matter too much.

6) Place your gingerbread shapes on the lined trays, allowing space for them to spread.

7) Cook for 10-15 mins, then remove from the oven and leave to cool.

8) Decorate!
