Recipe Info

  • Yield : 20
  • Prep Time : 20m
  • Cook Time : 15m
  • Ready In : 35m


  • 350g Plain Flour
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 100g butter
  • 175g brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup


Step 1

Pre-heat the oven to 190°C. Put the plain flour, bicarbonate of soda and ginger into a bowl and rub in the butter.

Step 2

Add the sugar and stir in the syrup and egg to make a firm dough.

Step 3

Roll out the dough to about 5mm thick and cut out your gingerbread into any shape that you like. If you are making decorations then remember to make a hole so it can be hung on the tree with ribbon.

Step 4

Bake on greased baking trays (spaced out, as they will spread) for 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown. Leave to firm up for a couple of minutes before placing on a wire rack to cool. Once cooled you can decorate your gingerbread with icing, glitter and other decorations.
