Last month was my first ever Gingerbread. I had it in an event. I wasn’t expecting anything from it, for it was my first time. Weeks after, my cousin bought a Gingerbread house for his husband ’cause it was his favorite. And when we ate it, it was so delicious. It was really, really, really GOOD! Then I told them that we should make one, so I tried making it last week. It went well so I might as well share it to everyone who is craving for a Gingerbread.
Here is a list of everything you need:
-125g of butter, room temp.
-100g brown sugar (firmly packed)
-125ml golden syrup
-1 egg, separated (egg yolk)
-375g plain flour
-1 tbs ground ginger
-1 tsp mixed spice
-1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
-150g (1 cup) pure icing sugar, sifted
STEP BY STEP
STEP 1.1 Mix butter and brown sugar in a bowl and beat it with your electric mixer until combined.
1. 2. Add golden syrup and egg yolk beat until creamy and pale.
1.3. Sift flour, bicarbonate soda, ground ginger, and mixed spice and add it in the bowl gradually.
1.4. Put a flour in your kneading area and knead it until smooth.
1.5. Make a circle and flat it, then cover it with a plastic wrap. Place it in a fridge for 30 minutes.
STEP 2. Pre-heat your oven to 180°C. Spray 2-3 baking trays with your cooking spray or just brush your trays with melted butter.
STEP 3. While waiting, place egg white in a dry bowl. Beat egg white until soft peaks form. Slowly add the icing sugar, beat until stiff peaks form. Cover it with plastic wrap and place it in fridge.
STEP 4. Place your dough in the middle of 2 baking paper.
STEP 4.1. Roll out until 3-4mm thick. Use any shape cutter you desire. (For me I use different sizes of stars.). Then place it in the baking trays with 2 cm apart. Repeat until you finish your dough.
STEP 5 . Bake in oven for 12 minutes. Then transfer in a rack to cool.
STEP 6. Place icing in an icing bag or make your own bag by twirling a piece of square baking paper and cut a hole on its tip.
STEP 7. ENJOYYY.!!! 😀
