GINGERBREAD FOR EVERYONE.!!!

3rd POST

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

FOR ICING
-150g (1 cup) pure icing sugar, sifted
-egg white
